A highlight of the BBC Proms 2012 were the five concerts given by conductor Daniel Barenboim with his West-Eastern Divan Orchestra. Alongside performances of all Beethoven's nine symphonies, Barenboim programmed music by another great giant of musical modernism, French composer Pierre Boulez. This programme brings together the Proms performances of four of these Boulez works, all written in the last quarter of the 20th century - Messagesquisse, Dialogue de l'ombre double, Mémoriale and Anthèmes. With members of the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, conducted by Daniel Barenboim, and introduced by Tom Service.
