Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra
Daniele Gatti, conductor

Amsterdam's mighty Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra is regularly named as one of the world's finest orchestras. Here it returns to the Proms for the first time in almost a decade, under its new Chief Conductor Daniele Gatti. The main work on their programme is Bruckner's Ninth Symphony - the composer's great, unfinished farewell to the form, and his final testament of faith. Written in 1995 for St Mark's Basilica in Venice, Rihm's In-Schrift is an exploration of space and its sonic possibilities. With no high strings and additional low brass, Rihm creates a sound-world of striking darkness, illuminated only by the piercing brilliance of percussion.
