Festival: BBC Proms

The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra makes its Proms debut with Music Director Louis Langrée, bringing works by two celebrated American composers. Bernstein’s symphonic suite drawn from his soundtrack to On the Waterfront is a cinematic journey through the docks and slums of post-war New Jersey, telling the story of one man’s heroic ght against corruption and intimidation. In a year in which America has inaugurated a new president, Copland’s Lincoln Portrait offers a musical homage to another. Lincoln’s greatest speeches are set against a stirring orchestral tone-poem: America in music. The climax of the concert is another passionate statement of musical nationalism: Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5

Tickets £14 - £60.
