CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)
Part of the BBC Proms. Liszt's symphonic poem (he invented the genre) is based on Victor Hugo's poem about the legendary Mazeppa, a nobleman caught in flagrante who is tied to a wild horse which is then driven into the night. Continuing this season's exploration of non-standard concertos, Ailish Tynan tackles a GliÃ¨re rarity unheard at the Proms since the 1980s. By contrast, Rachmaninov's gloriously lyrical Second Symphony has become a firm favourite in recent years. A sense of symphonic unity is provided by its network of thematic cross-references, which also give rise to some of the composer's best tunes. The Adagio is especially famous for its lovely, long-breathed clarinet melody over softly murmuring violins. Finish time: approx. 21:10 Performers Ailish Tynan (soprano).
