Intermusica at the Proms
A busy year for Intermusica artists at the Proms began with Matthias Bamert's extraordinary concert that included the British premiere of Weill's Die Propheten followed by Mahler 4 with the BBC Symphony. Heinrich Schiff conducted a blistering account of the Beethoven Eroica in his sold-out appearance with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and Richard Hickox together with the City of London Sinfonia drew a large audience for an adventurous programme which included works by John Tavener and Diana Burrell. Louis Lortie's classy performances of Ravel and Gershwin brought the house down (and was seen on a subsequent TV broadcast) while Howard Shelley not only sizzled in Szymanowski's Symphony No 4 (Sinfonia Concertante) but also took over Richard Goode's Mozart performance with the BBC Symphony and Andrew Davis (live broadcast on BBC TV) after Goode became indisposed. Frank Peter Zimmermann played the Mendelssohn Concerto with his customary style and Michael Collins dazzled once again with John Adams' Gnarly Buttons. He also performed at a Proms Chamber Music Concert with his ensemble London Winds.
