London Philharmonic Orchestra

In a special one-off performance, Antonio Pappano, Music Director of the Royal Opera House, conducts the London Philharmonic Orchestra in a programme of richly beautiful music. In eschewing breaks between movements and treating the symphony as a continuous journey, Schumann’s Fourth represented a radical development, rewarding listeners with its overarching integrity and rich melodic development.

Meanwhile in Richard Strauss we see a composer whose long life straddled unthinkable upheavals: his sparkling fin-de-siècle tone poem depicting the merry adventures of a medieval hero seems to come from a different world to his last set of orchestral songs, written after the annihilation of the civilisation Strauss had known and overwhelming in their beauty and nostalgia.
