Prom 43/Falla, Andriessen, Ravel
Presented by Jonathan Swain.
BBC Proms 2009:
A Prom in which Esa-Pekka Salonen makes his first appearance at the Royal Albert Hall as the Philharmonia's new principal Conductor. It features Falla's El amor brujo, a fiery flamenco vision of a midnight exorcism, the Labeque sisters giving the UK premiere of radical Dutch composer Louis Andriessen's new concerto, plus Ravel's magical fairy-tale evocations of Mother Goose and the relentless crescendo of his Bolero.
