Brahms Symphony No 3
Elgar Symphony No 1
Guildhall Symphony Orchestra
Vassily Sinaisky conductor
Guildhall Symphony Orchestra returns to Barbican Hall stage for a programme of Elgar and Brahms conducted by Vassily Sinaisky.
Opening the concert is Johannes Brahms's 1883 work, with its famously beautiful, lyrical third movement. It was praised by the influential music critic Eduard Hanslick as being 'artistically the most nearly perfect' of all the composer's symphonies.
Sir Edward Elgar's first foray into the symphonic form was long anticipated, and the composer was 51 years old by the time his Symphony No 1 was complete. Following multiple curtain calls and standing ovations at its 1908 premiere, this masterful English work has become a concert hall favourite.
£15, £10 (£5 concessions) available from Barbican Box Office from Monday 16 March. Priority booking for Guildhall Circle Members (by phone only) from 1pm on Monday 2 March.
