Unfortunately, Infection Protection Measures Ordinance of the Bavarian State Government continues to allow only 25% of the possible seating capacity. To our great regret, the first concerts of the subscription series C (on 20./21.01.2022) under the direction of Robin Ticciati can therefore not take place as part of the subscription. Subscription Series C customers will, of course, automatically receive a pro-rata refund of their subscription fees. Subscription tickets issued for the concerts on 20/21 January will be cancelled and are invalid. We ask for your understanding that the refund will take some time. On Tuesday, January 4, 2022, at 9 am the concerts went on sale again with a capacity of 25%.

About the Programme
Exiles – thus the title of the new large-scale work for soprano, chorus and orchestra by Julian Anderson, a British composer born in 1967. Anderson probes highly contrasting aspects of his subject, ranging from the Jewish nation’s yearning for home during the Babylonian Captivity to an homage to Varian Fry, who enabled thousands of people to escape Nazi persecution, to the forced isolation of today’s pandemic. Rachmaninoff, too, suffered deeply from exile: the October Revolution of 1917 drove him from Russia and left him uprooted forever. His longing for the vanished world of his native land explains the often-rapturous romanticism of his music. It is this inflection that pervades the Third Symphony of 1936, along with modern harmonies and layers of sound. Heading the unusual programme is the British conductor Robin Ticciati, a longstanding and welcome guest at the BRSO.
