The NYOGB presents a fiery and virtuosic programme of 20th-century orchestral masterpieces, conducted by Proms favourite Edward Gardner. BBC New Generation Artist Louis Schwizgebel takes the lead in Prokofiev’s youthful First Piano Concerto, which brims with the same audacious energy that pulses through Stravinsky’s vividly colourful ballet Petrushka. Lutosławski’s Concerto for Orchestra closes the evening with still more primary-coloured, folkloric brilliance and drama.

Programme

About this event

The National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain makes its annual visit to the Proms with a fiery and virtuosic programme of 20th-century orchestral showpieces, conducted by Proms regular Edward Gardner.

A Russian first half sees BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Louis Schwizgebel take the lead in Prokofiev’s youthful First Piano Concerto. Written while the composer was still a student, it brims with the same audacious energy that pulses through Stravinsky’s great ballet Petrushka. Lutosławski’s vivacious Concerto for Orchestra closes the evening with still more primary-coloured, folkloric brilliance and drama.
