BBC PROMS 2011
Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London
Presented by Rob Cowan
Myung-Whun Chung conducts the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France and is joined by Proms first-timers Gautier and Renaud Capuçon, and pianist Frank Braley for Beethoven's Triple Concerto. There's also colourful music by Messiaen alongside the UK premiere of an exciting new work for large orchestra by Pascal Dusapin.
Pascal Dusapin is one of the most exciting contemporary voices around, combining stylistic experimentation with emotional directness. Dusapin studied briefly with Olivier Messiaen, whose first orchestral work, Les offrandes oubliées, opens the concert.
