On Thursday 25 July 2019 at 19:00
Festival: BBC Proms
Strauss, Richard (1864-1949)Till Eulenspiegels lustige Streiche
Broström, Tobias (b. 1978)Nigredo – Dark Night of the Soul (concerto for two trumpets and orchestra) BBC co-commission with Malmo Symphony Orchestra: UK premiere
Brahms, Johannes (1833-1897)Symphony No. 1 in C minor

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