Edward Gardner conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the BarbicanIt's time for some classy music in a classy setting. Edward Gardner directs the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus in Tippett's moving oratorio A Child Of Our Time at the Barbican Centre, prefaced by Beethoven's Apollonian Fourth Piano Concerto and Knussen's delightful suite from Higgledy Piggledy Pop.
Superb soloists feature in Tippett's extraordinarily prescient work. Gifted BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Louis Schwizgebel takes on Beethoven's graceful fourth concerto, while we follow Maurice Sendak's dog Jennie to heaven in Knussen's affectionate requiem The Way to Castle Yonder.
