BBC National Orchestra of Wales
Markus Stenz (concductor)

The mischievous escapades of the irrepressible Till Eulenspiegel – Germany’s beloved folk-hero – introduce a concert that celebrates the dramatic power of the orchestra.

Markus Stenz conducts the BBC NOW in its first concert of the season, pairing Strauss’s lively tone-poem with Brahms’s turbulent Symphony No. 1 – the work that announced him as the ‘heir to Beethoven’.

Trumpeters Håkan Hardenberger and Jeroen Berwaerts are rival soloists in a rhythmically charged new double concerto by Swedish composer Tobias Broström.

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