Alexandre Tharaud piano
BBC Philharmonic
Juanjo Mena conductor

The intense, contrasting moods of Mahler’s Symphony No. 5 – the bitter solemnity of its funeral march, the violence of its second movement and the tenderness of the famous Adagietto – make this one of the great orchestral showpieces.

In his Proms concerto debut, French pianist Alexandre Tharaud performs Ravel’s atmospheric and virtuosic Piano Concerto for the Left Hand, and the concert opens with the first of several works at this year’s Proms celebrating Sir Harrison Birtwistle’s 80th birthday – an atmospheric plunge into mossy, melancholic darkness, lightened only by the call of birds.



Harrison Birtwistle : Night's Black Bird
Maurice Ravel : Piano Concerto for the Left Hand
Gustav Mahler : Symphony No. 5 in C sharp minor

PROMETHEUS DROWNED | AIRBORNE
Presteigne Festival

United Kingdom
01544 267800

Nova Music Opera
Richard Williams director | George Vass conductor

Cast includes: Clare McCaldin mezzo-soprano; Christopher Good actor;
Donna Lennard soprano; Henry Manning baritone
Nova Music Ensemble

United by a common theme of misadventure, but distinct enough to engage and excite on many levels, Prometheus Drowned and Airborne make perfect performance partners.

Prometheus Drowned, Stephen McNeff’s reworking of an earlier Presteigne Festival
commission, is a chilling exploration of the strange circumstances surrounding the death of Percy Bysshe Shelley in 1822 at Livorno in Tuscany. Richard Williams has worked the libretto from contemporary sources, using journals, diaries and a number of Shelley’s own writings.

For Airborne, we move forward in history to World War I, where we meet Johnny, a pilot in the Royal Flying Corps, and Alice, a nurse in the Queen Alexandra’s Imperial Military Nursing Service Reserve. The opera reflects their parallel experiences on 1 July 1916, allowing them to interact and sing and dance together as their minds go back to the high spots of their deepening love affair; both anticipate and then witness the huge debacle that was the Battle of the Somme.

Susan Gritton soprano
Toby Spence tenor
Hanno Müller-Brachmann baritone
BBC Proms Youth Choir
City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra
Andris Nelsons conductor

‘My subject is War, and the pity of War.’ Wilfred Owen’s shattering verse sits at the heart of Britten’s War Requiem – that great pacifist outpouring of horror and sorrow. To mark 100 years since the start of the 1914–18 conflict, the War Requiem is performed here by the same orchestra that premiered it in 1962.

The CBSO and Music Director Andris Nelsons are joined by the BBC Proms Youth Choir in its third great English choral work, following powerful performances of Tippett’s A Child of Our Time (2012) and Vaughan Williams’s A Sea Symphony (2013).
