BBC Proms - Bristol Beacon - Evelyn Glennie

The Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra – Bristol Beacon’s Orchestra in Residence – opens its concert with a little-known gem of Ukrainian music. Feodor Akimenko was born in Kharkiv in 1876, going on to teach Igor Stravinsky before writing his beautiful ‘Poème- Nocturne’ Angel in 1912. The BSO’s Ukrainian Chief Conductor (and Akimenko aficionado) Kirill Karabits conducts it here as a prelude to American composer Jennifer Higdon’s seriously flamboyant Percussion Concerto, played by Evelyn Glennie, and Tchaikovsky’s heart-on-sleeve Symphony No. 5. Knell by Iranian composer Niloufar Nourbakhsh offers a glance back to Akimenko’s Angel in its momentary, symbolic plea for peace.

A female sound improvisation by experimental musician Bex Burch and Dame Evelyn Glennie

An exceptional musician with an exceptional story: Evelyn Glennie grew up in rural Aberdeenshire, deeply rooted in the folklore of her Scottish homeland. When her hearing deteriorated at the age of 8, she discovered the percussion instruments and her own body as a resonance chamber. Today she can look back on a successful career - and now the world's most famous percussionist is coming to Hanover!

For this exclusive concert at the Überschlag Festival, she has invited an equally-impressive artist to join the dialogue. Bex Burch, born in London, is an outstanding gyil player and sound artist. With a background in ethnomusicology and African musical tradition, Burch has created a unique and creative sound world all of her own.

This will prove to be an unforgettable evening improvised from A to Z by two formidable artists.

Brighton Philharmonic Orchestra 2024/25 Season: Dame Evelyn Glennie joins Brighton Philharmonic for a dazzling programme, from the Scottish Highlands to fairy tales from Arabia.

We’re thrilled that one of Britain’s greatest and pioneering musicians, the extraordinary percussionist Evelyn Glennie, will be joining us to perform one of her signature pieces: James MacMillan’s Veni, Veni, Emmanuel, written as a tribute to her virtuosic flair and charismatic personality. Taking the Advent plainsong as the basis of the work, this is a tour de force and still packs the punch it had at its BBC Proms premiere twenty years ago. Now in the pantheon of contemporary classics, it still sounds wonderfully imaginative, rhythmically impulsive and vibrantly colourful, and will be an unforgettable experience.
