Details

New York-born conductor Marin Alsop has a remarkable ability to get the best out of people, from the world’s leading professionals to the urban youth of Baltimore and outstanding young female conductors.

Together, Alsop and the BPO perform two of the twentieth century’s most popular works – Britten’s great showpiece and Bartók’s synthesis of East European folk melody and rich orchestral textures, written in America while the composer languished in obscurity and frail health, his last completed work and a nostalgic love letter to his homeland.

These two landmarks in the orchestral repertoire are paired with British composer Anna Clyne’s Masquerade, first heard at the Last Night of the Proms in 2013, and the European premiere of a John Adams work specially commissioned as a parting gift to Marin Alsop by the orchestra of the Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music.
