Sir Simon Rattle gathers a huge orchestra of the LSO and Guildhall School musicians for a work at the very height of Romanticism: Bruckner’s Fourth.

‘A massive concert with a massive orchestra’ – Sir Simon Rattle’s remarks when describing this gargantuan programme. We open with Vaughan Williams’ richly textured, elaborate piece for double string orchestra, Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis, before filling the Barbican stage with woodwind and percussion for Percy Grainger’s affectionate portrait of Lincolnshire folk song and its singers, Lincolnshire Posy.

And then summoning large orchestral forces once more, Sir Simon conducts Bruckner’s Symphony No 4; subtitled the ‘Romantic’, it conjures brightly coloured images of enchanted woodland, knights and huntsmen with a clarity surely only Bruckner could have achieved.
