BBC Proms 2008
Prom 71: Chicago Symphony Orchestra
Date: Monday 08 September 2008
Time: 07:30pm – 09:40pm
Channel: BBC Four
A welcome return to the Proms of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, this time under its new Principal Conductor Bernard Haitink.
Chicago Remains - by one of the CSO's Composers-in-Residence, Mark-Anthony Turnage - was inspired by the striking architecture of Chicago and the poetry of Carl Sandburg, but Turnage says he was also influenced by memories of the 1970s Bruckner recordings by Haitink (who gave the work's premiere last October). The title-page is inscribed to the memory of Sir John Drummond, a former Director of the BBC Proms and an early and loyal champion of Turnage's music.
In the second half, Haitink conducts one of Mahler's greatest symphonies: a work of staggering power that seems to challenge Fate, but ultimately yields in the face of its overpowering force.
