DaveHarries Posted July 10, 2011 Share Posted July 10, 2011 Hi all, Just gone through the listing for the 2011 BBC Proms and the organ features as follows: Prom 1, Sunday 04th September | David Goode Programme includes: Judith Weir - Stars, Night, Music and Light Janáček - Glagolitic Mass Note: this is not an organ solo concert. Prom 3, Sunday 17th July | Stephen Farr Alain - Litanies Liszt - Prelude 'Weinen, Klagen, Sorgen, Zagen' (arr. Winterberger) J. S. Bach - Chorale Prelude 'Erbarm dich mein, o Herre Gott', BWV 721 Judith Bingham - The Everlasting Crown Note: World première of Bingham piece. Prom 34, Tuesday 09th August | Thomas Trotter St. Saëns - Symphony no. 3 in C Minor forms part of the second half of this prom. Prom 66, Sunday 04th September | Thierry Escaich Thierry Escaich - Overture in the Baroque Style (improvisation) JS Bach - Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland (BWV 659) Thierry Escaich - Evocation III (on 'Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland') Reger - Chorale Prelude 'Jauchz, Erd, und Himmel, juble hell', Op. 67 No. 15 Franck - Chorale No. 2 in B minor Liszt - Adagio in D flat major, S759 Thierry Escaich - Triptych on Themes by Liszt (improvisation) Note: UK première of the Evocation III. That is all I can find for this year. it isn't as much as last year but it is still better than not having any organ at all! However, as an aside to the organ music, Prom 54, Wednesday 24th August has Marc–André Hamelin doing a piano concert with all music by Liszt. Oddly the programme includes the Fantasia & Fugue on B.A.C.H. Could be a good concert but would rather hear the B.A.C.H on the organ! I think this year is a debut for Mr. Escaich? Sounds like a good concert in store from him and should be worth hearing. HTIOI, Dave Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
