Gotham's Reckoning (Bane's theme) from The Dark Knight Rises...

I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

Prom number 19

Langgaard - Symphony No. 11, ‘Ixion’ (5 mins) UK Premiere

Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen - Incontri (14) - UK Premiere

Shostakovich - Cello Concerto No. 1 in E flat major (29 mins)

INTERVAL

Tchaikovsky - Symphony No. 6 in B minor, 'Pathétique' (45 mins)

Daniel Müller-Schott cello
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Thomas Dausgaard conductor

Thomas Dausgaard’s programme opens with 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 Gudmundsen-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.



Didn't think much of the Langgaard and the Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen piece isn't much cop either, still the rest of the programme should be good.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

I am totally chilled out after playing two of my favourite Vaughan Williams pieces (on the one CD).

The first is An Oxford Elegy - poetry set to music with a choral background. Simply beautiful! :)



This YouTube version is the same recording that I have.

The other piece is called Flos Campi and is very soothing, relaxing and quite lovely. :)
