German composer Charlotte Seither adapts the words of the 17th-century poet Francesco de Lemene in a new work for the BBC Singers and the BBC Symphony Orchestra, using voices and syllables as spots of ‘human colour’. Josep Pons conducts this world premiere alongside the 1947 version of Stravinsky’s Petrushka, the a cappella motets Ave Maria and Pater noster, and the four-minute novelty Scherzo à la russe, written in Hollywood for the bandleader Paul Whiteman. Frank Peter Zimmermann is the soloist in Brahms’s much-loved Violin Concerto.Tickets £7.50 - £36.
