Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra at Proms

 Date:30/08/2004
 Type:concert
 Location:london

André Previn makes a long awaited return to the Proms with the Norwegian orchestra of which he became Music Director last season, and with the violin concerto that he recently wrote especially for his wife, Anne-Sophie Mutter

Debussy's languidly erotic reverie (Prélude à L'après-midi d'un faune) was turned into a notorious succès de scandale when choreographed by Nijinsky for Diaghilev's Ballets Russes. And the concert ends with Prokofiev's rousingly popular Fifth Symphony.

Detailed notes about the music will be available two hours before the concert.
