Jac van Steen and the Ulster Orchestra attempt to entice new audiences to classical music, with mixed results.
Mixed fare that Istanbul State Symphony Orchestra and conductor Christopher Warren-Green, with Nelson Freire's performance the highlight.
Garrick Ohlsson joins for Osmo Vänskä and the Cleveland Orchestra for Grieg's famous Piano Concerto, followed by a beautiful Sibelius Fifth Symphony.
Manchester favourite Nobuyuki Tsujii made a welcome return to the BBC Philharmonic with Grieg’s popular Piano Concerto, followed by a thrilling performance of Mendelssohn’s Scottish Symphony, conducted by Juanjo Mena. The concert began, though, with a world première. Emily Howard was commissioned by BBC Radio 3 to write her new work, Axon, for the BBC Philharmonic.
