Femi at the Barbican - first concertDate:28/02/15

Location: Barbican

Title:Segerstam conducts Bruckner

Musicians:BBC Symphony Orchestra

BBC Singers

Leif Segerstam – conductor


This performance, our first ever concert was ‘epic’.  Pizzicato punctuated the music throughout the 100 minute piece. It was long and hard to concentrate on as I felt like falling into a dreamy trance but it was too exciting to miss. Our cello teacher’s friend, Matt Lowe, performed as one of the cellists – he was amazing. This was a hardcore event – me and my mum found it a bit painful to stay so silent for so long! We looked at the posture and differing playing styles of each of the cellists – so much stimulation on lots of different levels.
