Sakari Oramo – Symphony No. 5

BBC Music Magazine 07/2023

The July 2023 issue of the BBC Music Magazine is all about the Proms. It’s available from 13th June 2023.

As the most substantial recording, the accompanying CD contains Sakari Oramo‘s 27th August 2021 Proms performance of Sir Malcolm’s Symphony No. 5 with the BBC Symphony Orchestra.

The CD contains:

John Foulds: Le Cabaret – Overture, Op. 72a
Manuel de Falla: The Three-Cornered Hat – Suite No. 2
Ralph Vaughan Williams: Toward the Unknown Region
Malcolm Arnold: Symphony No. 5, Op. 74
Laura Mvula: Sing to the Moon

BBC Symphony Orchestra
BBC Singers
BBC Symphony Chorus
Conducted by Sakari Ormano

Oramo’s deeply committed interpretation, supported by the virtuosic playing from the orchestra, makes the best possible case of proclaiming the Fifth to be Arnold’s symphonic masterpiece.
