2016: Song of the Night

Part of Classical Season 2020/21

This event has been cancelled as we are currently closed due to the coronavirus crisis.

Drink in pint-sized pieces from 1816, 1916 and 2016 with the London Philharmonic Orchestra’s 2020 Vision series.

Good things come in small packages, and symphonies don’t come more delightful than Schubert’s irresistibly witty Fifth of 1816.

A hundred years later Prokofiev pulled off the same trick – with added satirical bite – in his ‘Classical’ Symphony of 1916.

Conductor Thomas Søndergård won’t hold back before unleashing the concentrated energy of the Two Episodes that Magnus Lindberg wrote for the LPO in 2016.

And then, to crown it all, tenor Michael Weinius lends his lustrous voice to Szymanowski’s ecstatic, ravishingly beautiful Third Symphony: The Song of the Night.
