Programme Note

Returning to the Proms for the first time since 2007, award-winning Scottish percussionist Evelyn Glennie celebrates her 50th birthday with a musical party. She performs alongside pianist Philip Smith, showcasing not only her expressive virtuosity and versatility in works by John Psathas and Keiko Abe, but also her skill as a composer, in Orologeria aureola, a joint composition for Halo (metallic ‘handpan’) and tape. The performance also features a world premiere for Aluphone - an instrument invented only in 2011 and introduced at the 2012 Olympics opening ceremony by Glennie herself.
