City Music Foundation, along with the Royal Albert Hall, are giving one lucky winner the chance to win a box for 10 people to see a completely sold-out BBC Proms concert on 6th September! Full information here.
BBC Proms programme notes describe the concert as “Bruckner, but not as we know him”.
In the Sixth Symphony, gone is the composer’s typical heft, his long-drawn crescendos and his archetypal brooding introduction. Instead, this symphony gallops into life, crackling with vitality. Bruckner’s rich and individual Sixth Symphony is heard in the second of the Staatskapelle Berlin’s two Proms after a piano concerto by Mozart that boasts similar rarity and individuality. Mozart’s sparkling Piano Concerto No. 26 was performed by the composer in Frankfurt during festivities in 1790 for the coronation of Leopold II as Holy Roman Emperor; tonight Daniel Barenboim gives its first Proms performance in over 40 years.
Daniel Barenboim directs Staatskapelle Berlin performing Mozart Piano Concerto No. 26 andBruckner Symphony No. 6
