Sakari Oramo, conductor
Two centuries on, Beethoven's Fifth Symphony has lost none of its shattering power. A tirade against destiny, it remains one of the most compelling yet perfect musical arguments ever created. Sakari Oramo conducts it here, after the pulsating drive of HK Gruber's Busking, performed by Håkan Hardenberger, the soloist for whom it was created. But, to start, music of pictorial delicacy: Henri Dutilleux's sonic reproduction of the cosmic, whirling effect of Van Gogh's painting The Starry Night.
Followed by a selection of recordings from this year's Proms Artists.
