London Symphony Orchestra 2022

with Sir Simon Rattle

Following their hugely successful visit to the South West in October 2021, Sir Simon Rattle and the London Symphony Orchestra make a triumphant return to Bath Forum in Spring 2022.

This is a concert that will transport you to other worlds, conjuring feelings that run too deep for words. From Hannah Kendall’s 21st-century classic The Spark Catchers, through Dvořák’s playful homage to the New World, to Schumann’s most personal (some might say greatest) symphony, this programme will take you on a fantastic emotional journey.

Inspired by Lemn Sissay’s poem, the vigorous rhythms and soaring melodies of Kendall’s The Spark Catchers take us into the lives of the women employed to catch stray sparks by London match manufacturers Bryant & May. Dvořák’s warm-hearted nostalgia for the New World is strongly felt in his American Suite, infused with a mix of American influences and Slavic tradition.

Finally, despite being written at a difficult time of his life, the musical love-notes to his wife Clara that Schumann threaded throughout his Second Symphony give this work an emotional heart that will leave you feeling enriched and uplifted.7
