Brahms’s First Symphony, one of the greatest of all Romantic symphonies, was first performed with considerably smaller musical forces than we are used to hearing today. Sir Mark Elder conducts Britten Sinfonia in a performance that returns to the spirit of those early concerts and allows the details of Brahms’s extraordinary lyrical masterpiece to shine through. The programme is completed by Mahler’s sublime Rückert-Lieder, with mezzo Elisabeth Kulman, Finzi’s soaring elegy for orchestra and Benjamin Britten’s arrangement of the second movement of Mahler’s Third Symphony.

6.30pm – Pre-concert talk: Germaine Greer talks to Sir Mark Elder about the programme and his career (free to ticket holders).

The concert will finish at approximately 9.30pm

This concert will be recorded by BBC Radio 3 for broadcast on Monday 13 November 2017.

The free minibus service between Audley End Station and Saffron Hall will be in operation for this concert. For more details click here
