Programme

BBC NOW at 90: Afternoon Concert

As part of BBC NOW’s 90th birthday, Nicola Heywood Thomas presents a concert from BBC Hoddinott Hall, and live on BBC Radio 3, looking back at artists and composers that have played significant roles in our development and identity.

Celebrating our distinctive role as a both a broadcast and national orchestra of Wales, the programme includes music by Bruch and Mozart, who featured in BBC NOW’s very first concert in 1928, alongside iconic Welsh composers Huw Watkins and Mathias, all conducted by Grant Llewellyn.

The Orchestra will be joined by current BBC New Generation Artist Eivind Holtsmark, and former member of the scheme Annelien Van Wauwe, marking BBC NOW’s longstanding partnership with BBC Radio 3 and their joint commitment to the promotion of new music and artists with a performance of Bruch’s Double Concerto. Plus, we’re delighted to welcome Llŷr Williams back for Mozart’s Piano Concerto No 22.

It’s set to be a wonderful celebration of the last 90 years, and we do hope you will join us.
