Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra to perform at the 2012 Proms
GREAT news - the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra is playing at the Proms again this year. I went along two years ago and it remains one of my favourite experiences in my job of arts editor.
Details. . .
The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and Chief Conductor, Vasily Petrenko will perform at the BBC Proms on Thursday, 23 August 2012.
The concert programme features Sir Peter Maxwell Davies' Symphony No. 9, Delius' Violin Concerto performed by Tasmin Little, and Shostakovich's Symphony No. 10.
Sir Peter Maxwell Davies is Master of the Queen's Music. His ninth symphony was commissioned by Liverpool Philharmonic as a Diamond Jubilee tribute and the world premiere performance is at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall on 9 June. Liverpool Philharmonic has enjoyed a long-standing and fruitful partnership with the world-class soloist Tasmin Little while the Orchestra and Vasily Petrenko's signature interpretations in concert and on disc of the Shostakovich symphonies have attracted international critical acclaim and numerous plaudits, including the Gramophone Awards Orchestral Recording of the Year for Symphony No. 10.
