Unfinished journey

Belief and Beyond Belief: Death

7:30 PM, ​ Royal Festival Hall, London, SE1 8XX

Magnus Lindberg Cello Concerto No. 2 (UK premiere)
Bruckner Symphony No. 9 (1951 Nowak edition)

Jukka-Pekka Saraste conductor
Anssi Karttunen cello
London Philharmonic Orchestra

Tonight's concert has been cancelled on police advice due to a security incident at Westminster. Ticket holders will be contacted in due course to arrange refunds.

Not every spiritual journey ends in redemption – but some feel that Bruckner’s huge, unfinished Ninth Symphony is all the more powerful for ending in a cry of unanswered longing. From its towering opening to soul-shaking finish, it’s one of music’s most personal and passionate confessions of faith, and few conductors are better equipped than Jukka-Pekka Saraste to navigate both its vast heavenly spaces and its bottomless chasms of doubt. The glowing autumn colours of Magnus Lindberg’s Cello Concerto – performed by the cellist for whom it was written – should be like a beacon of hope before Bruckner’s long night of the soul.
