Start the New Year with a night to remember. The incredible sound of Shostakovich’s powerful First Cello Concerto will stay with you long after the concert is over, and who better to perform this technical and musical feat than Leonard Elschenbroich, BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist 2012-2014? Brahms took nearly 15 years to complete his First Symphony, in which lush strings, blazing brass and pounding timpani combine to astonishing dramatic effect. Sit back and let the BBC Philharmonic’s glorious sound sweep over you in this piece famously described as ‘Beethoven’s Tenth’.
