Afternoon concerts return to City Halls and the first is spearheaded by Artist in Residence, Jörg Widmann. Anyone who saw him with us in October 2021 will recall his extraordinary energy and dynamism, and once again he’s playing and conducting. The BBC SSO strings open with Mozart’s vivacious Divertimento (one of his so-called ‘Salzburg Symphonies’) before boosting the numbers in a performance of Weber’s bubbling quintet. Written when he was just 20, Widmann’s Fantasie demands mind-boggling technical skill and combines Romantic lyricism with touches of dance, klezmer and jazz. And to close, he directs the orchestra in a work that links a series of 10 short movements, each of which is inspired by a different type of sound phenomenon.
