One of Beethoven's loveliest symphonies, a London premiere for Anna Clyne's haunting This Midnight Hour and Britten's magical violin concerto. Anna Clyne's 2015 orchestral work This Midnight Hour draws inspiration from two poems, one by Juan Ramon Jimenez , the other by Charles Baudelaire, to take the listener on a vivid journey. Vilde Frang then plays Britten's Violin Concerto, a work that's finally emerged from the shadows and one that Frang has made her own (she won a Gramophone Award in 2016 for her recording of the work). Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony makes a wonderful end to the evening, evocative in a very different but equally satisfying way. It's a programme that demonstrates Sakari Oramo's range and superb rapport with his orchestra.
