About This Event

The BBC National Orchestra of Wales and its Principal Conductor Thomas Søndergård explore the music of two 20th-century female composers whose early deaths cut their careers tragically short: Prix de Rome winner Lili Boulanger and Wales’s Morfydd Owen, whose Nocturne showcases a sensuous and utterly original musical voice.

Bertrand Chamayou makes his Proms debut in Mendelssohn’s First Piano Concerto – composed when Mendelssohn was just 22 – while Schumann’s jubilant Fourth Symphony is also the work of a composer exploring new musical maturity.

Broadcast on BBC Four on Sunday 22 July
