Under the baton of Dalia Stasevska, the Orchestra of Opera North presents a programme on the theme of reflection. Lutosławski’s searingly intense Musique funèbre is an early milestone that leaves a deeply emotional impact.

Richard Strauss’ Four Last Songs are the composer’s gloriously serene and transcendent swansong, with reflections on life and death woven throughout. The vocal lines, performed here by acclaimed Romanian-born soprano Ana Maria Labin, are a beautiful contemplation of life, and renowned as some of the most stunning song settings in the canon.

There are few finer culminations to a symphony than the ending of Bruckner’s seventh, and the great adagio is a song of farewell. Bruckner’s music was given little appreciation in his lifetime, but the Seventh Symphony was an exception; an unqualified success at its premiere in 1884, it remains one of his most popular works.
