CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned general re-opening time. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. A few pantomimes may be possible but we await a relaxing of the rules for theatres from the Government.
Part of the BBC Proms. Featured artist Christian Tetzlaff has played many of the great violin concertos but this is his first Proms performance of the big-boned, technically demanding work by Brahms, all of whose concertos can be heard during this Proms season. With his early Das klagende Lied, Mahler hit upon his own unique style. Tonight's account includes 'WaldmÃ¤rchen', the emotive first panel dealing with the quest of brother knights for a flower that will win a queen's hand but leads to sibling murder. The score resurfaced as recently as 1969. Finish time: approx. 21:25 Performers Christian Tetzlaff (violin), Melanie Diener (soprano), Ekaterina Gubanova (mezzo-soprano), Stuart Skelton (tenor), Christopher Purves (baritone).
