Prom 72: English Music
An evening of 20th-century English music that looks beyond pastoral stereotypes. The nostalgic idyll of Vaughan Williams’s Fantasia on ‘Greensleeves’ is soon abandoned for the brutality of his Symphony No. 4 and Birtwistle’s Exody – a terrifying musical labyrinth. Walton’s much-loved Viola Concerto will be played here by rising star and BBC New Generation Artist Lise Berthaud.
