CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
Part of the BBC Proms.- The BBC Scottish SO, under Chief Conductor Ilan Volkov, pair two Diaghilev commissions. With its pounding rhythms, cataclysmic upheavals and savage scenario of a young girl dancing herself to death, Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring is still genuinely earthshattering - no wonder Nijinsky's 1913 production provoked a riot. Begun as a homage to the Viennese waltz but twisted by his wartime experiences into a darker vision of a society whirling to disaster, Ravel's La valse was actually rejected by Diaghilev and only finally staged in the year of his death, choreographed by Nijinsky's sister Bronislava. Unsuk Chin's new Cello Concerto was written specially for Alban Gerhardt, an early member of Radio 3's New Generation Artists scheme. Approx. finish time: 21:55Performers Alban Gerhardt (cello).
