Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London
Presented by Petroc Trelawny.
Thomas Dausgaard conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra in Tchaikovsky's 6th Symphony, contemporary Danish music and Shostakovich's 1st Cello Concerto with soloist Daniel Muller-Schott.
Thomas Dausgaard and the BBC Symphony Orchestra present a night of firsts. Making its UK premiere is maverick Rued Langgaard's tuba-rich 11th Symphony of 1945. There's also the UK premiere of octogenarian Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen's Incontri. Daniel Muller-Schott makes his Poms debut as the soloist in Shostakovich's hyper-concentrated 1st Cello Concerto. And the Prom ends with Tchaikovsky's radical and deeply emotional 6th Symphony.
