From this year´s BBC Proms, famous for its popular, yet high-quality bouquet of concerts, Unitel will present and make available for international distribution a selection of at least four programs.
American cellist Alisa Weilerstein in her first BBC Proms appearance ever will perform Shostakovich´s famous First Cello Concerto. Karina Canellakis will conduct the BBC Symphony Orchestra also featuring Rachmaninov´s Symphonic Dances as well as Andrew Norman’s “Spiral” in an UK premiere. Paavo Järvi will present as another Proms debut his Estonian Festival Orchestra and as a soloist none other than Khatia Buniatishvili with an evening dedicated to ‘the North’: next to the ever-popular Piano Concerto by Edvard Grieg and Jean Sibelius’ Fifth Symphony, the Third Symphony by Arvo Pärt will be performed in this legendary concert hall. Iván Fischer and the Budapest Festival Orchestra will present an all Hungarian evening playing a virtuosic concert-hall reimagining of folk tunes by Brahms, Liszt and Sarasate. Soloists are four famous Hungarian folk musicians playing violin and cimbalom, Hungary’s national instrument. And last but not least, distinguished pianist and Bach specialist Sir András Schiff will complete his last year’s performance by playing the second book of Bach´s masterpiece “The Well-Tempered Clavier”.
