John Storgårds directs his Lapland Chamber Orchestra – the most northerly professional orchestra in the EU – making its Proms debut.
Contemporary music forms a key role in the ensemble’s work, and here the group celebrates the 80th birthdays of two major British composers – Sir Harrison Birtwistle and Sir Peter Maxwell Davies. Swedish trumpeter Håkan Hardenberger is the soloist in Birtwistle’s concerto Endless Parade, whose dark, maze-like landscape is matched by the languorous vistas of Honegger.
The anniversary celebrations of C.P.E. Bach continue with the spiky, brooding textures of his Symphony in B minor.
- Concert Duration:
- approx. 1½ hours (no interval)
