The Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra has unveiled another ambitious season of live-streamed concerts and a return to symphonic touring this autumn.

The world-renowned BSO will tour symphonic performances and continue its series of 'On Your Doorstep’ chamber-scale performances across the south west.

Among the many anticipated highlights will be Brahms' Violin Concerto, Shostakovich Piano Concerto No.2, Sibelius Symphony No 1, The Armed Man by Sir Karl Jenkins, Beethoven's Symphony No 7 and Grieg's Piano Concerto.

Three new works written by women will feature in the 2021/22 concert year including Carmen Ho’s new work, commissioned by the BSO and receiving its world premiere under the baton of Kirill Karabits in Poole in November.

Later in the concert year, the BSO will perform new works by Elizabeth Ogonek and Franghiz Al-Zadeh.

Horn player Felix Klieser makes his UK concerto debut this autumn, beginning his tenure as the Orchestra’s Artist-in-Residence.

Klieser will be the first German horn player to have a residency with a British orchestra.

The pioneering live-streamed broadcasts reached greater than concert hall capacity during 2020/21 and the orchestra will continue to offer the streams throughout its coming season, with performances from Lighthouse, Poole broadcast each Wednesday.

Chief Executive, Dougie Scarfe, said: “We’re thrilled to be making a return to symphonic touring this autumn.

"From full symphonic concerts to chamber-scale performances and workshops we’ll return to our regional venues and expand our reach into the local communities who, whilst connected digitally during the last 18 months, have missed experiencing the BSO in person."

Chief Conductor Kirill Karabits, returns with four programmes this autumn opening the season in Poole in October with Bizet’s L’Arlesienne Suite and an early symphonic work by Prokofiev, the Autumnal Sketch.

He said: “Performances in the presence of a live audience have a magical quality. There is an exchange of emotion and energy — a kind of alchemy between audience, conductor and musicians — and I can’t wait for the concert hall to come alive once more.

Guest artists and conductors include Sunwook Kim who makes a European conducting debut with an all-Beethoven programme.
