Helmut Lachenmann: Tanzsuite mit Deutschlandlied (UK premiere)

8.10pm Interval

Mahler: Symphony No. 5 in C sharp minor

Arditti Quartet
Bamberg Symphony Orchestra
Jonathan Nott (conductor)

Written over the summers of 1901 and 1902, Mahler's Fifth remains one of the best-loved symphonies in the repertory, its famous Adagietto a love-letter to his wife, Alma. Before it, the brilliantly virtuosic Arditti Quartet joins the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra for Helmut Lachenmann's Tanzsuite mit Deutschlandlied, an abrasive, unsettling example of the composer's 'musique concrète instrumentale', whose metallic timbres and subtle textures promise to transfix and enthrall.

This Prom will be repeated on Thursday 18th July at 2pm.
