Britten Sinfonia - Elder conducts Mahler and Brahms

Britten Sinfonia
Sir Mark Elder, conductor
Anna Stephany, mezzo-soprano

Britten: Suite on English Folk Tunes
Mahler: Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen
Brahms: Symphony No. 2

Brahms as Brahms wished it to be heard: Sir Mark Elder joins Britten Sinfonia for the second instalment of their Brahms Symphony Cycle, paired with Mahler songs and Britten’s last completed orchestral work .

Sir Mark Elder conducts Brahms’s radiant and bucolic 2nd symphony, in the second year of an acclaimed four-year symphony cycle. The cycle borrows from the spirit of early performances of the works by performing them with the musical forces that Brahms intended, to ‘exhilarating’ effect (The Times). The concert also traces a poetic line from Brahms’s symphonic Romanticism to more intimate evocations of poetry, love and nature in Mahler’s emotionally charged Songs for a Wayfarer, and Britten’s Suite on English Folk Tunes, the composer’s last completed orchestral work.

Warren Mailley-Smith, piano


Albinoni- Adagio
Bach – Piano Concerto in D minor
Handel – Lascia ch’io pianga
Vivaldi – Winter (from the 4 Seasons)
Bach – Double Violin concerto in D minor


Celebrate the end of the week on Burns Night with The Piccadilly Sinfonietta, London’s newest orchestra featuring some of the UK’s most brilliant young professional musicians, lead by the sensational british violinist Harriet Mackenzie.

The dynamic Chamber Orchestra presents a programme of some of the greatest Baroque music ever written including “Winter” from Vivaldi’s masterpiece, “The Four Seasons” and Bach's thrilling Double Violin Concerto in the beautiful surroundings of St James’ Church, in the heart of London’s West End by the evocative glow of candlelight.

This is complimented by a rendition of Handel's heart-wrenching Aria "Lascia ch'io pianga" sung by stunning soprano Susan Parkes and a performance of Bach's sparkling Piano Concerto in D minor featuring exceptional british pianist Warren Mailley-Smith, who has developed a large following across the UK thanks to his effortless technique and charismatic charm. One of his most extraordinary achievements is performing the complete solo works (3.5 million notes) of Frederick Chopin from memory. Mailley-Smith is a firm favourite with the Royal Family and he has been featured as Classic FM CD of the Week.
