World Premiere of Huw Watkins’s The Moon at the BBC Proms 2019

Jul. 15, 2019

World Premiere of Huw Watkins’s <em>The Moon</em> at the BBC Proms 2019

Huw Watkins’s The Moon receives its world premiere with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and the BBC National Chorus of Wales, under the baton of Tadaaki Otaka, on August 8 at Royal Albert Hall as part of the BBC Proms 2019. This new work for chorus and orchestra features texts by Percy Bysshe Shelley, Philip Larkin, and Walt Whitman, and was commissioned by BBC Radio 3.

The composer notes:

“Inspired by the fiftieth anniversary of the moon landing this year, my new work for chorus and orchestra uses favourite poems by Percy Bysshe Shelley, Philip Larkin and Walt Whitman to explore the sense of wonder we identify with the moon and space. The piece tries to capture our experience of viewing the moon from Earth, and is also somehow about looking back at us here on Earth from above. I am delighted to work again with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, who I have come to know closely as their Composer-in-Residence, and for the first time with the wonderful BBC National Chorus of Wales.”
