Thomas Dausgaard's audacious programme opens the UK premiere of a briefly blazing, tuba-rich symphony completed in 1945 by the Danish maverick Langgaard, whose Music of the Spheres was such a highlight of the 2010 Proms season. There's also a UK premiere by fellow Dane Pelle Gudmunsen-Holmgreen.
The established masterpieces are Russian: Shostakovich's hyper-concentrated First Cello Concerto, in which we welcome Proms debut artist Daniel Müller-Schott, and Tchaikovsky's most radical and masterly symphonic confrontation with existential despair.
Symphony No. 11, 'Ixion' 5'

Please note change of programme: unfortunately, Benedict Mason's BBC commission, meld, has had to be withdrawn from the programme and Chantage will consequently not be performing. We are very pleased to announce the UK premiere of Pelle Gudmundsen Holmgreen's Incontri.
Please note the programme order as Langgaard, Gudmundsen-Holmgreen, Shostakovich and Tchaikovsky.
