Stockhausen, Matthews, Schumann - Part 1

BBC Proms, 2010 Season, Prom 15 Episode 1 of 3


Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Martin Handley

Oliver Knussen conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra in this wide-ranging programme, opening with Stockhausen's festive overture from 1977 and continuing with a trio of recent British works, including Colin Matthew's Violin Concerto with soloist Leila Josefowicz. The Proms' Schumann symphony cycle, celebrating the bicentenary of the composer's birth, continues with the Third Symphony. It's the most pictorial, evoking by turns a beer garden by the Rhine and the Gothic magnificence of Cologne Cathedral. A century later Bernd Alois Zimmermann's witty Rhine-Church Festival Dances, celebrated the same German region.
