Overview

The sun comes out in Lili Boulanger’s lively tone poem, and lyrical feelings bloom in music by Samuel Barber and Sergei Rachmaninov.

D’un matin de printemps is one of the few glimpses we have of Lili Boulanger’s compositional genius, a sparkling miniature that leaves a lasting impression of spring. The emotional sincerity of Samuel Barber’s lyrical Violin Concerto cuts to the heart, its nervy third movement building up to a burst of feeling. And passion reigns in Rachmaninov’s opulent Second Symphony. Its third movement contains some of the most beautiful music he ever wrote.

‘I try to put my whole being into my music,’ says Janine Jansen, one of the world’s most expressive violinists. Here she evokes the raptures of Barber’s concerto with stirring support from Sir Antonio Pappano and the LSO.

‘There's no reason music should be difficult for an audience to understand’ – Samuel Barber

Venue Info

Barbican Centre - London
Location   Silk Street

The Barbican Centre is a performing arts centre in the Barbican Estate of the City of London and the largest of its kind in Europe. The centre hosts classical and contemporary music concerts, theatre performances, film screenings and art exhibitions. It also houses a library, three restaurants, and a conservatory.

The London Symphony Orchestra and the BBC Symphony Orchestra are based in the center's Concert Hall. In 2013, it once again became the London-based venue of the Royal Shakespeare Company following the company's departure in 2001.

In to two theatre spaces play host to the finest international theatre, dance and performance by artists and companies who are challenging the idea of what theatre can be.

An icon of Brutalist architecture, the Barbican is one of the UK’s architectural treasures.

Working with a site almost completely razed by the Blitz, the Barbican’s architects, Chamberlain, Powell, and Bon, seized the opportunity to propose a radical transformation of how we live in buildings and cities.

The result is one of London’s most ambitious and unique architectural achievements: a city within a city that is raised above street level and draws on a rich palette of references, from ancient Roman fortresses and French Modernism to Mediterranean holidays and Scandinavian design.
