Bernstein Symphony No. 2, The Age of Anxiety
Bartók Concerto For Orchestra
The orchestra’s Principal Conductor is joined by pianist Krystian Zimerman for Bernstein’s Symphony No. 2, inspired by W H Auden’s poem The Age of Anxiety that follows four strangers as they struggle to combat their loneliness in an increasingly industrialised world. Alongside, Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra; a vibrant work that gives each section of the orchestra a chance to shine, and is rich with influences from throughout Bartòk’s career, from Bach fugues to Hungarian folk dances.
