Afkham conducts The Great Symphony

Thursday 8 May 2014, 7.30pm
Royal Festival Hall, London


David Afkham conductor

Sergey Khachatryan violin

A fascinating programme featuring three highly distinctive works bound together by a common musical theme. In the case of Berg’s Violin Concerto and Lindberg’s Chorale it is a chorale melody employed by Bach, the first three notes of which also act as a musical motto for Schubert’s Great Symphony, whose ‘heavenly length’ (Schumann) grows entirely out of its distinctive rising shape.
