2013: Rites of Renewal

Part of Classical Season 2020/21

Make the musical connections between 1813, 1913 and 2013 with the London Philharmonic Orchestra’s 2020 Vision project.

In Beethoven’s footsteps, a new voice arose: a young genius who embodied the birth of Romanticism like no other.

Franz Schubert takes up the thread of 2020 Vision with his irrepressible First Symphony of 1813.

And a century later in 1913, Stravinsky blew Western music sky-high with his explosive Rite of Spring.

There’s only one way to match that kind of radicalism; and any new piece by Magnus Lindberg is a headline event.

He wrote his Second Cello Concerto in 2013, but this performance by Jukka-Pekka Saraste and Anssi Karttunen – the cellist who gave its premiere – is a UK first.
