BBC Proms 2016: The Planets With The National Youth Orchestra
Saturday 6 August
It’s an out-of-this world presentation of brand new sounds and much-loved classics. The concert launches with the London premiere of Iris ter Schiphorst’s Gravitational Waves, before blasting off to Strauss’s Also sprach Zarathustra (better known as the music from Space Odyssey).
The final destination is Holst’s mighty Planets, with further embellishment from Colin Matthews’ Pluto. Big music for a big orchestra.
Presented by Clemency Burton-Hill and former NYO-er and composer Lloyd Coleman, the music will be peppered with exciting insights in to the music and the impassioned players.
