First Night of the Proms
I’m thrilled to have been commissioned to write an orchestral piece to open the First Night of the 2017 BBC Proms. Edward Gardner will conduct the BBC Symphony Orchestra in the premiere of ‘St. John’s Dance’ at London’s Royal Albert Hall on the 14 July. The concert also features Igor Levit playing Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3 and John Adams’ Harmonium with the BBC Symphony Chorus.
The concert will be televised live on BBC Four and also broadcast on BBC Radio 3.
