Festival: BBC Proms

Vladimir Jurowski bids farewell to the London Philharmonic Orchestra after nearly 20 years as its Music Director in a concert of the 20th-century repertoire he has championed so passionately during his time in London. The rise of Nazism is the catalyst for both Stravinsky’s ballet Jeu de cartes (‘Card Game’), in which forces of good triumph over the wicked Joker, and Hindemith’s symphony Mathis der Maler (‘Mathis the Painter’), in which the demons and angels of the Isenheim Altarpiece are vividly dramatised. Walton’s rhapsodic Cello Concerto takes us forwards to the 1950s and the end of the composer’s career. Leading British cellist Steven Isserlis is the soloist.
