Elegy to Johannes Brahms

Gavin Higgins
Horn Concerto

Symphony No.2 in D major, op.73

BBC National Orchestra of Wales

Jaime Martin conductor

Ben Goldscheider French horn

Revel in the chance to hear a world premiere by our Composer-in-Association Gavin Higgins this new year – fresh from winning the 2023 RPS award for his Concerto Grosso for Brass Band and Orchestra. Composed for today’s soloist Ben Goldscheider, it’s sure to be a firecracker, and not one to miss.

Spring-like freshness and a joyous mood permeate Brahms’ Second Symphony. Written with staggering speed compared to his first, which took an astonishing 20 years to complete, this masterpiece is one of the most popular of all romantic symphonies… but to start, what better a pairing that Parry’s Elegy for Brahms? To conduct we’re delighted to welcome back the inimitably talented Jaime Martin.
