8/8. Cheltenham Festival 2007

BBC Proms 2007

Another chance to hear last Sunday's Proms concert featuring a work by Austrlian composer Brett Dean. His witty 'sociological cantata' strikes a blow against reality TV, automated answering services, the dehumanisation of contemporary society and the warped language of corporate jargon. The work shares a social conscience with Beethoven's Symphony No 7, premiered in 1813 at a benefit concert for soldiers wounded in the Napoleonic Battle of Hanau. Presented by Christopher Cook.
