At Home, with the RSNO
Errollyn Wallen Mighty River
Detlev Glanert Violin Concerto No2 To the Immortal Beloved WORLD PREMIERE
Ryan Bancroft CONDUCTOR

BROADCAST DATE: Friday 15 January 2021: 7.30pm

Errollyn Wallen’s Mighty River is dedicated to her great-great-great-great-great-great-grandmother, a slave. ‘It is an innate human instinct to be free,’ she says, ‘just as it is a law of nature that the river should rush headlong to the sea.’ This gripping orchestral work from one of Britain’s most original living composers makes an unforgettable impact. What better piece to accompany it than a stunning new violin concerto inspired by the tragic love-story of Ludwig van Beethoven – music’s great champion of freedom – and performed by acclaimed violinist Midori.
