About this event

Thomas Dausgaard’s audacious programme opens with the UK premiere of a briefly blazing, tuba-rich symphony completed in 1945 by the Danish maverick Langgaard, whose Music of the Spheres was such a highlight of the 2010 Proms season, there's also a UK premiere by fellow Dane Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen.

The established masterpieces are Russian: Shostakovich’s hyper concentrated First Cello Concerto, in which we welcome Proms debut artist Daniel Müller-Schott, and Tchaikovsky’s most radical and masterly symphonic confrontation with existential despair.

 

Please note this event contains an update to the concert programme from that in the 2012 BBC Proms Guide.
