Anna Clyne Night Ferry (UK premiere)
Britten Piano Concerto
Elgar Symphony No 1

BBC Symphony Orchestra
Andrew Litton
conductor
Benjamin Grosvenor piano

Two leading lights in a new generation of British artists grace this evening: Benjamin Grosvenor, the youngest soloist ever to open the Proms in 2011, performs Britten’s brilliant, youthful piano concerto. Composer Anna Clyne, whose dazzlingly inventive rewind was such a hit for the BBCSO, returns with a major new work commissioned by the Chicago SO, Night Ferry. The Transatlantic theme continues when well-loved American champion of British music, Andrew Litton takes on Elgar’s monumental First Symphony. Widely hailed as ‘the first great English symphony’, this rich and poetic work is a complex weave of nobility, aching sadness and, in the composer’s words, ‘massive hope’.

The concert will finish at approximately 9.45pm
