Pascal Rophé Conducts Dutilleux

The BBC Symphony Orchestra performs four of Henri Dutilleux's best loved pieces

Dutilleux described his taut, cogent and deeply satisfying first symphony as "a little like the birth and the unfolding of a dream". Special guest Pascal Rophé directs this and the exquisite "concerto for orchestra" Métaboles, inspired by the luminous timbres of the Cleveland Orchestra. The BBC Symphony Orchestra return to a Baudelairean world of dreams for Tout Un Monde Lointain, performed by virtuoso cellist Alban Gerhardt, while The Shadows of Time is a devastating response to the diaries of Anne Frank, in which three boy soloists intone "why us?". Under 5s are not permitted in the Barbican Hall. Valid ID may be required.
