The Summer Proms Concert guest conductor will be Hilary Davan Wetton and Leader, Martin Smith who will also be performing the solo from Danse Macabre by Saens Saens.
We are delighted to welcome Stephen Hough as our soloist to play the Piano Concerto No. 21 in C Major (K467) by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. He has had a distinguished career which began as a finalist in the BBC Young Musician of the Year, winning the piano section in 1978 and has appeared as a soloist with most of the major orchestras throughout the UK, America, Canada, Hong Kong and Tokyo. Sometimes called ‘Elvira Madigan’, this title came into being after the second movement was used in a film about a tightrope walker of that name in 1967.
The 1st half includes Brahms’ Hungarian Dance No. 5; Delibes Prelude and Mazurka from Coppélia; Tchaikovsky’s Waltz fromThe Sleeping Beauty and R. Vaughan Williams’ Fantasia on GreensleevesIn
The 2nd half we hear Rossini’s William Tell Overture; Walton’s March – Crown Imperial; Bizet’s Farandole from L’Arlésienne; Elgar’s Nimrod and Rimsky Korsakov – Capriccio Espagnol.
The concert will also include the Proms favourites such as Pomp and Circumstance Marches and a selection from Fantasia on British Sea Songs.
