Week 2: 9-17 April 2017
The BPO began the making of a major new NAXOS film of Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra, before twinning it with another symphonic tour de force, Bartók’s virtuosic Concerto for Orchestra. There were two concerts at Snape Maltings Concert Hall as part of the Easter Weekend programme – one on Saturday night and one for families narrated by Tom Redmond. *Karin Hendrickson replaced an ill Marin Alsop for the families concert.
