Marin Alsop and the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the Barbican – 4th December 2015

prom76e (1)

A programme of supernatural-inspired works from Tchaikovsky, Judith Bingham, and a UK premiere of James MacMillan’s Woman of the Apocalypse, under celebrated conductor Marin Alsop.

James Macmillan composed his colourful Woman of the Apocalypse for Alsop’s own festival in Cabrillo, California. It evokes the mystical appearance of an angelic woman at times of crisis, whilst Judith Bingham’s dramatic oboe concerto, The Angel of Mons, depicts just such a shimmering vision, this time at the Battle of Mons, performed by the peerless Nicholas Daniel. It is the ‘inscrutable predesination of fate’ that haunts Tchaikovsky’s fifth symphony, transforming tragedy to triumph.
