Sakari Oramo conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra

Maverick clarinet virtuoso Martin Fröst makes a rare UK appearance as soloist in Aaron Copland’s ravishingly beautiful, jazz-infused Clarinet Concerto.

He joins the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chief Conductor Sakari Oramo for a programme of 20th century greats, bookended by two great Russian symphonies. Shostakovich’s startlingly buoyant Ninth Symphony couldn’t be further from the sombre contemplation and mourning of Prokofiev’s Sixth Symphony, a musical portrait of post-war ‘wounds that cannot be healed’.
