From the Royal Albert Hall, London. BBCNOW/Thierry Fischer in Berlioz: Overture (Les francs-juges). Michael Jarrell: Sillages (BBC co-commission; world premiere).

From the Royal Albert Hall, London. Presented by Tom Service.

Principal conductor Thierry Fischer brings the BBC National Orchestra of Wales to the Proms to perform music by Berlioz as well as the premiere of a new triple concerto by his Swiss compatriot, Michael Jarrell. Co-commissioned by the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, it brings together a trio of the finest woodwind players. Sillages refers to the wake a ship makes through water, and likewise the lines of the three soloists leave a trail of orchestra sound behind them.
