WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Part of the BBC Proms.

The ensembles that took Bach's cantatas to 14 countries in their Bach Pilgrimage of 2000 return to the Royal Albert Hall for a Late Night Prom. The Easter Oratorio opens with a Sinfonia that pitches a trio of trumpets against consorts of woodwinds and strings, and a poignant Adagio for solo oboe. Scored for similar forces, the Ascension Oratorio features an alto aria that mirrors the curves of the Agnus Dei from Bach's Mass in B minor. Sir John Eliot Gardiner, 70 this year, directs the internationally renowned Monteverdi Choir and English Baroque Soloists. There will be no interval. Finish time: approx. 23:15
