Duration:
1 hour, 30 minutes
First broadcast:
Wednesday 10 August 2011

PROMS 2011

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Louise Fryer

The Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and Kirill Karabits perform three colourful scores, two of them with connections to Karabits's Ukrainian homeland.

The concert begins with a swashbuckling tone-poem by Liszt telling the story of a legendary Ukrainian, Mazeppa, and it ends with Rachmaninov's most famous (and most lyrical) symphony. Between them comes a real novelty - a melody-filled concerto for wordless soprano and orchestra by Ukrainian-born composer Reinhold Glière. The effervescent Irish soprano Ailish Tynan takes the extraordinary solo part.

Kirill Karabits has been Principal Conductor of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra for two seasons now and their relationship is blossoming into something rather special.
