Part of the BBC Proms.
The mischievous escapades of the irrepressible Till Eulenspiegel - Germany's beloved folk hero - introduce a concert that celebrates the dramatic power of the orchestra. Markus Stenz conducts the BBC NOW in its first concert of the season, pairing Strauss's lively tone-poem with Brahms's turbulent Symphony No. 1 - the work that announced him as the 'heir to Beethoven'. Trumpeters Hakan Hardenberger and Jeroen Berwaerts are rival soloists in a rhythmically charged new double concerto by Swedish composer Tobias Brostr?m.
