The final concert in this year’s Proms at… Cadogan Hall series, tracing over 800 years of music history, brings us from the late 20th century right up to the present day.

A giant of British contemporary music, composer Oliver Knussen is celebrated a year on from his death in a special performance by the newly formed Knussen Chamber Orchestra. Made up of orchestral principals and rising young musicians from across the UK, the ensemble is conducted by Knussen’s protégé Ryan Wigglesworth.

Knussen’s own Purcell-inspired …upon one note, lyrical Songs without Voices and Study for ‘Metamorphosis’ for solo bassoon are framed by works from Sir Harrison Birtwistle, Alastair Putt and a newly commissioned work by Freya Waley-Cohen.

Duration: approx. 1 hour (no interval)
