In his final season as the BBC National Orchestra of Wales's Principal Conductor, Thomas Søndergård explore the music of two 20th-century female composers whose early deaths cut their careers tragically short: Prix de Rome winner Lili Boulanger and Wales's Morfydd Owen, whose Nocturne showcases a sensuous and utterly original musical voice. Bertrand Chamayou makes his Proms debut in Mendelssohn's First Piano Concerto - composed when Mendelssohn was just 22 - while Schumann's jubilant Fourth Symphony is also the work of a composer exploring new musical maturity.
