      EVENT DETAILS
      The BBC Philharmonic with Omer Meir Wellber and Jan Vogler (cello)

      Israeli-born conductor Omer Meir Wellber has just become the BBC Philharmonic’s new Chief Conductor, so we’re delighted to welcome him to Nottingham for the first time. He’s joined by German cellist Jan Vogler who performs two rhapsodic works on Hebraic themes: Ernest Bloch’s Schelomo, which evokes the meditations of King Solomon in music that’s both contemplative and seductive; and Max Bruch’s Kol Nidrei. This beautiful prayer of repentance helped ensure that its composer became famous for more than just his First Violin Concerto. The programme begins with Richard Strauss’s Till Eulenspiegel, the mischievous deeds and pratfalls of its antihero memorably rendered in Strauss’s brilliant orchestration. This irrepressible spirit is also felt in the relentless energy of Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony. The rhythmic impulse of Beethoven’s writing can’t be contained, and the high-octane finale, complete with stratospheric horns is truly wild, stomping joyfully through the orchestra.

      Pre-concert talk, 6.20pm in the auditorium: Jonathan James on Beethoven’s 7th Symphony.
