Just in: BBC unfurls its Andrew Davis Prom

The late Sir Andrew Davis was due to conduct Prom 53 on August 30.

His sudden death last month has led to a revised concert, conducted by Martin Brabbins: the first half remains the same with Stravinsky’s Symphony in Three Movements and the UK premiere of Jacob’s Ladder by Steve Reich, co-commissioned by the BBC. The second half will now include Michael Tippett’s The Midsummer Marriage – Ritual Dances and the Enigma Variations by Elgar, two pieces close to Sir Andrew’s heart.
