The Proms, London’s eight-week season of daily orchestral classical music concerts and events, will kick off for 2019 on July 19 and is returning to Cadogan Hall on Sloane Street this summer for eight more concerts of world-class chamber music, taking you through over 800 years of musical history.
The musical journey begins with Proms debut artists VOCES8 in a programme ranging from the supple 12th Century chants of Saint Hildegard of Bingen to the sophisticated Renaissance music of Palestrina, Lassus and William Byrd.
The final concert brings us to the present day with music by British contemporary composer Oliver Knussen performed by the newly formed Knussen Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Knussen’s protégé Ryan Wigglesworth.
This year, Cadogan Hall’s line-up BBC Proms concerts include several standout events, held every Monday lunchtime, including moving choral music by soprano Louise Adler, contemporary chamber music and an array of other enticing performances.
