Everything old is new again. Béla Bartók roamed the forests of Transylvania, listening to the folk songs that he hoped would open a path to the musical future. John Ireland celebrated the landscape of his beloved South Downs, in music as fresh as an English spring morning. And Ralph Vaughan Williams took an ancient hymn tune and wove a masterpiece like no other: serene, impassioned and as beautiful now as the day it was first heard – in Gloucester Cathedral, 110 years ago. Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla conducts the strings of the CBSO in music to refresh mind and spirit, and our brilliant new leader Eugene Tzikindelean brings a very personal flair to music close to his heart.
This concert will be filmed in Symphony Hall, Birmingham on Wednesday 18 November 2020, and will be available to view online only from 6pm on Thursday 26 November 2020 until Tuesday 22 December 2020.
