About this event

Celebrating his 80th birthday this year and the subject of one of this season’s Proms Plus Composer Portraits, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies is one of the greats of contemporary British music.

This programme chosen by the composer himself explores his wide-ranging sound-worlds, from the sleek and glittering chamber textures of A Mirror of Whitening Light (completed in 1977, shortly after his move to Orkney) to the confrontational music drama of Revelation and Fall.

London Sinfonietta Principal Cellist Timothy Gill is the soloist in Linguae ignis’s writhing plainchant melodies, and 
Sian Edwards returns to conduct, following her Proms Saturday Matinee appearance last year.

There will be no interval
