BBC PROMS 2010
Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London
Presented by Martin Handley
The BBC Philharmonic returns to the Proms with Chief Conductor Gianandrea Noseda. The first part of the concert conjures up flavours of Noseda's native Italy, commencing with Verdi's overture to his opera 'The Force of Destiny'. Dallapiccola's Partita is a dazzling piece from early in his career, ending with a prayer to the Blessed Virgin Mary, sung by Sarah Tynan.
Music from Germany after the interval, with Bruch's most popular work, his First Violin Concerto, and Schumann's Fourth Symphony which encapsulates the world of this most Romantic of composers, and continues the Proms' complete cycle in the bicentenary of his birth.
