BBC Proms: Salonen conducts Bruckner

Concert

Esa-Pekka Salonen conductor

Midori violin

Described by the violinist Midori as "so rhapsodic and so individual", DoReMi is Peter Eötvös’s second violin concerto, given its UK première here with Esa-Pekka Salonen conducting. This, with the sparkling overture to Mozart’s 1786 backstage comedy of artistic tantrums and overblown egos, Der Schauspieldirektor, contrasts with Bruckner’s great tribute to Wagner, the Seventh Symphony.
