BBC Proms - 2010 - Prom 63 - Rameau, Canteloube, Matalon, Mussorgsky - Part 2
BBC PROMS 2010 Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London Presented by Louise Fryer The BBC National Orchestra of Wales' French-born associate conductor, François-Xavier Roth, directs a mainly French-flavoured programme beginning with a brilliant suite by Rameau and a selection of Canteloube's seductive folk song settings. The title of Paris-based Argentinian composer Martin Matalon's new work translates as 'Lines of Flight' and relates to a technique in drawing where added lines produce depth and perspective in a picture. Finally a rarely-heard version of Musorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition, orchestrated with characteristic flair and imagination by founder of the Proms, Sir Henry Wood. Martin Matalon: Lignes de fuite (UK premiere) Musorgsky, arr. Henry Wood: Pictures at an Exhibition Anna Caterina Antonacci, soprano BBC National Orchestra of Wales François-Xavier Roth, conductor This prom will be repeated on Thursday 9th September at 2.20pm.
