4. Schubert and Grieg: Camilla Tilling, Neal Davies, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Jac van Steen

11 October 2019, 7:30pm - 9:30pm

Thrilling orchestral songs with two top singers; BBC National Orchestra of Wales with the leading Dutch conductor Jac van Steen; songs of myths, legends and Nordic landscapes: a spectacular opening-night concert in the splendour of Oxford’s Town Hall.

Music by Schubert includes part of the incidental music of Rosamunde, as well as songs from mythology including ‘Prometheus’ and ‘Erlkönig’, in orchestrations by Berlioz, Brahms and Reger. BBC NOW also performs the first of Grieg’s Peer Gynt suites, with the hair-raising ‘In the Hall of the Mountain King’, alongside songs from Peer Gynt including the haunting ‘Solveig’s Song’. The programme also features Sibelius’s masterful tone-poem for soprano and orchestra, Luonnotar, setting texts from the Kalevala.
