About This Event

Amsterdam’s mighty Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra is regularly named as one of the world’s finest orchestras. Here it returns to the Proms for the first time in almost a decade, under its new Chief Conductor Daniele Gatti. The main work on their programme is Bruckner’s Ninth Symphony – the composer’s great, unfinished farewell to the form, and his final testament of faith.

Written in 1995 for St Mark’s Basilica in Venice, Rihm’s In-Schrift is an exploration of space and its sonic possibilities. With no high strings and additional low brass, Rihm creates a sound-world of striking darkness, illuminated only by the piercing brilliance of percussion.
