About

BBC Symphony Orchestra and their Principal Guest Conductor Dalia Stasevska opens their Fairfield Hall concert with Einojuhani Rautavaara’s magical Cantus Arcticus –  a serene soundscape for taped birdsong and orchestra.

They are joined by Turkish pianist Can Çakmur for Schumann’s Piano Concerto – a detailed and intimate work that explores and tests the relationship between soloist and orchestra – before the stirring Sibelius Symphony No. 2 completes the concert. The folk-like melodies of this thrilling symphony are often heard as a musical celebration of Finnish life and identity.

Venue Info

Phoenix Concert Hall

Designed as a scaled down version of the Royal Festival Hall, (both venues shared the same acoustic consultant, Hope Bagenal), our Concert Hall is recognised internationally for its fantastic and bright acoustics and has “…some of the finest acoustics in Europe” as stated by renowned conductor Leopold Stokowski.

The Phoenix Concert Hall will once again play host to the London Mozart players as resident Orchestra, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the English Chamber Orchestra.
