BBC Proms 2009:

Another chance to hear Thierry Fischer conducting the BBC National Orchestra of Wales in Sillages - a new triple concerto for flute, oboe and clarinet by Michael Jarrell. The Albert Hall stage is crowded with the massive forces needed for Berlioz's Symphonie funebre et triomphale; the Prom then finishes with Beethoven's Symphony No 3, which was originally dedicated to Napoleon.
