2009, Prom 58: Netherlands Wind Ensemble20091222

Catherine Bott presents a high-intensity late-night Prom given by some of the world's best wind players.

The Netherlands Wind Ensemble perform Steve Martland's Beat the Retreat, a work written for the last big Purcell anniversary in 1995.

In celebration of the 70th birthday of Martland's iconoclastic teacher, Dutch composer Louis Andriessen, there is the minimalist masterpiece De Staat (The State).

The concert ends with Doors Closed, a belated London premiere for a 1980s classic by a leading Dutch pupil of Andriessen's, Cornelis de Bondt.

It is a musical ritual of death superimposing the funeral march from Beethoven's Eroica Symphony on the famous Lament from Purcell's Dido and Aeneas.

02 LAST2009, Prom 69: Mendelssohn, Mahler, Part 220090907

From the Royal Albert Hall, London.

Presented by Donald Macleod.

Riccardo Chailly conducts the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra in Mahler's Tenth Symphony, left unfinished at his death but triumphantly premiered at the 1964 Proms in a 'performing version' prepared by musicologist Deryck Cooke and Berthold Goldschmidt.

Written in the shadow of failing health and a collapsing marriage to his young wife Alma, Mahler scribbled notes in the margins of the manuscript - at one point he wrote 'to live for you, to die for you' and over the tender, peaceful ending, when he seems to have come to some resolution, he wrote just one word 'Almschi' - his nickname for his wife.

062009, Proms Chamber Concerts, Pcm 06 - Joshua Bell, Steven Isserlis And Denes Varjon20090905

From Cadogan Hall, London.

Presented by Louise Fryer.

Long-term chamber partners Joshua Bell and Steven Isserlis join forces with a brilliant young Hungarian pianist for music of poetry and drama.

They perform Fantasiestucke, Schumann's four character pieces, which were the composer's first works for piano trio, composed in 1842 when he was particularly interested in the form.

These are followed by Mendelssohn's Piano Trio, Op 49, which Schumann himself dubbed 'the master trio of our age'.

It bears the hallmarks of an expressive 'song without words' and a fleeting 'scherzo', alongside the Romantic sweep and grandeur of its outer movements.
