Tom Service presents a Prom in which the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra perform Pierre Boulez's Le marteau sans maitre and Beethoven's Quintet for piano and wind.

Presented by Tom Service
Chamber music by Beethoven complements the current Proms cycle of his complete symphonies and is matched by Pierre Boulez's revolutionary work for voice and ensemble from the 1950's depicting 'the hammer without a master' in settings of texts by the Surrealist poet Rene Char.
