Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London
Presented by Tom Service
The West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, under the baton of Daniel Barenboim continues its Beethoven cycle with two dramatic symphonies: the compact Eighth and the Seventh, famously dubbed 'the apotheosis of dance'. It was the last piece conducted by Proms founder-conductor Henry Wood. This ebullient symphonic music is contrasted with Pierre Boulez's beautifully serene Anthèmes 2, scored for violin and live electronics.
