BBC Proms 2008

Time: 06:20pm – 08:00pm

Charles Hazlewood and Suzy Klein bring back the Beethoven night, an old Proms tradition. Joining them in the studio is Beethoven enthusiast and expert John Suchet.
The performances were taken from the following Proms:
Prom 62: Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester – Monday 1 September 2008
A dynamic young soloist - born in Denmark to Polish-Israeli parents - joins tonight's great pan-European youth orchestra for Beethoven's only violin concerto.
Znaider views this work as the violinist's 'bible', its 'ultimate challenge' - and in his musical partners he can rely on the freshness of youth coupled with Sir Colin's wisdom and experience.
Beethoven Violin Concerto in D major (45 mins) **
Nikolaj Znaider violin
Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester
Sir Colin Davis conductor
Prom 15: BBC Symphony Orchestra – Monday 28 July 2008
As well as marking Elliott Carter's centenary this Prom celebrated the 200th anniversary of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony, premiered in 1808.
Apart from opening with the most famous motif in the whole of Western music, Beethoven's Fifth is a study in coiled tension and release that never fails to thrill.
Beethoven Symphony No.5 in C minor (32 mins)
BBC Symphony Orchestra
David Robertson conductor
** NB. I have already uploaded the complete Prom 62, which contained the Violin Concerto in D major. If you have downloaded that, then unfortunately you already have part of this show. Hopefully the attraction of the Fifth Symphony should make this download worthwhile
