Tippett - Symphony No.4

The BBC Philharmonic is a welcome guest in the Thursday Series due to the Hallé’s appearances in China, and they celebrate three giants of recent British musical history. Sir James MacMillan has enjoyed a long association with the Orchestra, and their performance of his Fourth Symphony marks his 60th birthday year. Sophie Bevan performs in Britten’s Les Illuminations – one of his most enduringly popular works for voice and orchestra. Sir Michael Tippett’s single-movement Fourth Symphony (1977) enjoyed huge success at the hands of Georg Solti and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, as well as the BBC Philharmonic, in the early years of its life.
