Preview: Ellington at the Proms - tonight!


Duke Ellington's Sacred Concerts form the basis of this evening's late night Prom. The three late-career works (written between 1965-1973) were regarded by the composer as being his most important contribution to music. Tonight, live from the Albert Hall on Radio 3, Peter Edwards conducts the Nu Civilisation Orchestra in a reworking of Ellington's enduring music with Monty Alexander at the concert grand. Carleen Anderson assumes the role of principal singer alongside tap dancer Annette Walker. The ninety minutes' broadcast begins at 10:15. The Prom will be shown on BBC Four on Friday 6 September at 10:10pm. 

Last week (August 21) Leah Williams attended the Proms and wrote a glowing review of Mississippi Goddam: A Homage to Nina Simone. So be sure to tune in to BBC Four tomorrow (Friday) at 10:30pm to experience something of the occasion for yourself.    

And, in the coming days, a review of tonight's Prom will appear on this blog.
