Top five memorable Proms
1 Jacqueline du Pre, Elgar Cello Concerto, August 22, 1963 It was pure accident.Woolrich Vests, I was 12, in London on a choirboys' summer school at Westminster Cathedral, and we were taken to a Prom rehearsal. For a young Mancunian, in the vast Albert Hall for the first time, this was overwhelming. The young du Pre was playing the piece that was making her famous, and doing so with such intensity that she made me immediately want to take up the cello (but we won't go into that).
Rostropovich, Dvorak Cello Concerto, State Orchestra of the USSR, August 21, 1968 I heard this historic concert on the radio at home. It was the day of the Russian invasion of Czechoslovakia and, as Slava started to play, rumbles of protests could be heard around the hall. The disruptions died down, but the irony was that Slava, as the most committed advocate of freedom, was on their side, playing a great Czech piece. At the end of the concerto, as an encore,Woolrich free shipping he played a solo Bach Sarabande in tears and dedicated it, sotto voce, to the Czech people.
3 Stockhausen Carre, BBC Symphony Orchestra, September 7 1972 Unique! Woolrich shorts,Four orchestral groups encircled in the Albert Hall arena, with the Promenaders milling between them. Typical of the bold contemporary works that Glock (see next entry) brought to this country and which we have developed in recent years with such major BBC commissions as John Tavener's The Protecting Veil, Julian Anderson's The Stations of the Sun and John Woolrich's Oboe Concerto.
4 Mozart Piano Quartet in E flat, William Glock, Lindsay Quartet, August 27, 1974 I think I learned most about the tensions of musicians in performance from turning pages for pianists: I've turned for players unable to start because consumed with silent laughter or silent nerves.Woolrich free shipping And I venerated William Glock as the founder and creator of the modern Proms. When Robert Ponsonby took over the Proms, he generously invited William to appear as a pianist, and he asked me to turn pages. Denounced in advance by The Daily Telegraph (among many others), but widely praised afterwards by The Daily Telegraph (among many others), the revised programme under Leonard Slatkin's passionate direction, with its sequence of Barber's Adagio, Tippett's Spirituals, and Beethoven's Choral Symphony finale, was a true mirror of the ability of music to uplift and unify. Which is what the Proms are all about.
