BBC Proms - 2009 - Prom 59: Tonhalle Orchestra
The Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich under conductor David Zinman plays music by Schubert, Mahler and Golijov. American soprano Dawn Upshaw is the soloist in the UK premiere of Golijov's acclaimed new work 'She Was Here' based on four Schubert songs, and Upshaw returns at the end of Mahler's Fourth Symphony to give the angel's-eye view of Heaven. The concert begins with Schubert's overture written as incidental music to the play Rosamunde. This live prom from the Royal Albert Hall is introduced by Clive Anderson.
