    About this event

    Previously featured at the Proms as a pianist (a role to which he returns in this concert, playing the prepared piano), Thomas Larcher has become one of Austria's leading composers, writing for prominent artists and ensembles in a style that steers a refreshing course between the old avant-garde and the newer wave of simplicity.

    Tonight sees the world premiere of a double concerto written for Viktoria Mullova and Matthew Barley. Anticipate an unconventional concertante group and an element of improvisation.

    After the interval, a different kind of soundscape, as Ilan Volkov and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra realise the vast architectural design of Bruckner's Fifth Symphony.
