Lunchtime Concert: Franck Symphony in D minor
Brahms Tragic Overture
Franck Symphony in D minor
Elena Schwarz Conductor
Forget Hercule Poirot: here’s a real famous Belgian. César Franck seemed like a quiet type until, late in life, he fell in love, and his music suddenly exploded with passion and power. His single, magnificent Symphony begins in gothic grandeur and ends with celebration – and a tune that you’ll never forget. Back in the day, it regularly topped the classical charts: and with the prize-winning Swiss-Australian conductor Elena Schwarz conducting, we know you’ll hear why.
Tickets on general sale from Wednesday 8 May 2019.
