Håkan Hardenberger (Trumpet)
Lapland Chamber Orchestra
John Storgårds (Conductor)
John Storgårds directs his Lapland Chamber Orchestra - the most northerly professional orchestra in the EU - making its Proms debut.
Contemporary music forms a key role in the ensemble's work, and here the group celebrates the 80th birthdays of two major British composers - Sir Harrison Birtwistle and Sir Peter Maxwell Davies. Swedish trumpeter Håkan Hardenberger is the soloist in Birtwistle's concerto Endless Parade, whose dark, maze-like landscape is matched by the languorous vistas of Honegger.
The anniversary celebrations of CPE Bach continue with the spiky, brooding textures of his Symphony in B minor.
Prom Saturday Matinee 2 repeat, Wednesday 20th August 1400-1530.
