Sir Harrison Birtwistle: Deep Time
(BBC co-commission with the Staatskapelle Berlin: UK premiere)

Elgar: Symphony No 2 in E flat major

Staatskapelle Berlin
Daniel Barenboim, conductor

Daniel Barenboim and the Staatskapelle Berlin bring the generous scope of their interpretation of Elgar's Second Symphony to their second concert of the season, celebrating a work whose modernity and astonishing textural effects startle even now.
Dedicated to the memory of Peter Maxwell Davies, who died last year, Sir Harrison Birtwistle's Deep Time continues his career-long fascination with time and its manipulation in a sweeping new orchestral work that swaps the relentless tick-tock of the everyday for something more powerful and more alien.

[First broadcast on Sunday 16th July]

Followed by a selection of recordings from this week's Proms Artists.
