Prom 40 repeat: Brahms, Berg, Larcher and Schumann

The Scottish Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Robin Ticciati, in Schumann and Thomas Larcher, and with Christian Tetzlaff in Berg's Violin Concerto at the Proms.

Afternoon on 3 - with Catriona Young.

Another chance to hear the Scottish Chamber Orchestra conducted by Robin Ticciati in Schumann and Thomas Larcher, and with Christian Tetzlaff in Berg's Violin Concerto.

Presented by Penny Gore from the Royal Albert Hall, London.

Brahms: Tragic Overture
Berg: Violin Concerto
Thomas Larcher: Nocturne - Insomnia (UK premiere)
Schumann: Symphony No 3 in E flat major 'Rhenish'

Christian Tetzlaff (violin)
Scottish Chamber Orchestra
Robin Ticciati (conductor)

Brahms's Tragic Overture is not so much tragic as a 'serious' follow-up to his more frivolous Academic Festival Overture.
Dedicated 'To the memory of an angel', Berg's luminous Violin Concerto is an intensely moving personal testament to the death of a young woman, quoting Bach's funeral chorale 'Es ist genug'.
Thomas Larcher's nocturnal wanderings receive their UK premiere before a joyous journey down the Rhine in Schumann's Third Symphony, which climaxes in a musical homage to Cologne Cathedral.

[First heard on 15 August 2017]

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