Life is celebrated and loss mourned in music spanning over 200 years.

The BBC Philharmonic and its Principal Guest Conductor Ben Gernon pair Beethoven's majestic final piano concerto - for which we welcome back Paul Lewis, who played all five Beethoven piano concertos in the 2010 season - with Brahms's sunny Second Symphony, whose lyrical, pastoral spirit harks back to the earlier composer's own 'Pastoral' Symphony (No. 6).

The concert opens in a more sombre, contemplative mood with the world premiere of Tansy Davies's What Did We See? - a meditation on death, healing and transcendence that builds on material from the composer's recent 9/11-inspired opera Between Worlds.
