They will be performing Benedict Mason's "Meld", Shostakovich's "Cello Concerto No. 1 in E flat major", Langgaard's "Symphony No. 11 (Ixion)", and Tchaikovsky's "Symphony No. 6 in B minor (Pathetique)".
As well as working closely with the BBC, the BBC Symphony Orchestra plays regular concerts at the Barbican and is the principal orchestra of world-famous Proms Concerts, giving around a dozen performances each year, including the prestigious First and Last Nights.
