about the programme

Ever since the corona pandemic hobbled our concert life, conductors such as Simon Rattle have tried to make the best of our limited opportunities by presenting works rarely heard in “normal” concert situations owing to their small instrumental formats. Brahms’s Serenade in A major, with its rapturous Adagio for Clara Schumann, is considered a major precursor to his symphonies. It was most recently conducted by Lorin Maazel in his Brahms cycle over 20 years ago. And Haydn’s Symphony No. 90 has never been played by the BRSO at all. Now it will receive just the right historically informed backdrop. And Stravinsky’s short Symphonies d’instruments à vent, written in memory of Claude Debussy in 1920, channel our focus entirely on the BRSO’s wind section.


Ticket presale begins on 23rd February 2021.

Provided that the legal regulations permit concerts with audiences, the concerts of the BRSO take place on the communicated dates and times. Tickets can be purchased by phone on 0800 5900 594, online at or via this website. You can find more information about ticket purchase here.
