Prom 67
  Performance Date:     Seat Amount:    
A Prom celebrating Nature in all her moods.

A flight of 16 swans was the catalyst for Sibelius's stirring Fifth Symphony, with its ambiguous, mysterious ending, while for Judith Weir it was nature's process - forests sprouting outwards from a single seed, endlessly growing and multiplying - that offered inspiration.

Nature turns menacing in Mussorgsky's vivid tone-poem A Night on the Bare Mountain. Boundarybreaking singer Nora Fischer is the soloist in the UK premiere of The Only One by Dutch composer Louis Andriessen, who turned 80 this year.
