Beethoven’s ‘Choral’ Symphony is a celebration of human endeavour, as is his ballet score The Creatures of Prometheus. Andris Nelsons gives his final concert as Music Director of the CBSO before returning (see Proms 49 and 51) with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, of which became Music Director last season. John Woolrich’s dark, sardonic contra-bassoon concerto was written for the CBSO’s own contra-bassoonist Margaret Cookhorn.

We are proud to announce that Ukrainian Tenor Dmytro Popov takes part in this concert.
