London Philharmonic Orchestra: To the Limits

Part of Classical Season

Jan Vogler and the London Philharmonic Orchestra perform Britten’s Symphony for cello & orchestra, conducted by Vladimir Jurowski.

Belief can offer a path out of hopelessness, and in his Symphony for cello & orchestra Benjamin Britten gave a voice without words to the Russian dissident cellist Mstislav Rostropovich.

Jan Vogler is the soloist in this performance, but Rostropovich’s words to Britten still apply: 'Write for the cello everything your heart tells you; no matter how difficult.'

Also on the bill is Silvestrov's Third Symphony, which creates new worlds from the ruins of the old, in music of breathtaking originality – the Soviet authorities back in 1966 didn’t like that at all. And Janácek’s certainties simply power through in a roof-raising orchestral spectacular that’s red in both tooth and claw.

Another revelatory evening with the London Philharmonic Orchestra's Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor Vladimir Jurowski.
