Prom 63

This listing is in the past
Royal Albert HallKensington Gore, London, Greater London, SW7 2AP, United Kingdom
Dates/times in London time zone
Festival: BBC Proms
One of the world’s most remarkable musical
partnerships offers an evening of wide-ranging sonic
adventure. Three gripping approaches to
experiencing calm feature in the first half – from
Ligeti’s slowly shifting sound-clouds through Wagner’s
sustained stillness to Sibelius’s most formidable and
bleak evocation of a frozen landscape. The Gallic
second half is all about movement and dance. Tennis
is not the only game played in
Debussy’s flirtatious ballet for
Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes, while
Ravel’s suite, drawn from an
earlier commission for the same
company, begins with a sunrise
and ends in an orgy.
