BBC Proms: Marin Alsop conducts the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra

  • Sat 13 Aug 2022
  • 7:30PM

Viennese orchestral playing is a byword for excellence, rooted in generations of tradition. But under its distinguished (and adventurous) American Music Director Marin Alsop, the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra takes that tradition as a starting point to look outwards – to explore. We are particularly delighted that young Austrian composer Hannah Eisendle will be featured with the UK premiere of Heliosis – written specially for Alsop and the Vienna RSO. Eisendle will also join the ACF London for a special project this autumn, stay tuned!

Bartók’s bloodcurdling ballet suite prepares the way for Prokofiev’s Third Piano Concerto: energising, unsentimental brilliance, brought to life by former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Benjamin Grosvenor. And then, two very different facets of the Central European tradition: the windswept drama and dancing Bohemian melodies of Dvořák’s magnificent Seventh Symphony, and the UK premiere of Heliosis – written specially for Alsop and the Vienna RSO by a young Viennese composer with a flair for drama.

Broadcast on BBC Four on Sunday 21 August
