Proms at ... Cadogan Hall 1

Cadogan Hall, London

Caroline Shaw (b.1982):
First Essay, 'Nimrod'

Robert Schumann (1810-1856):

'There are many musical ideas here, and Shaw moves seamlessly from one to the next'.

'The Calidores gave us highly polished and convincing performances here, providing a strong platform for Shaw’s imaginative writing'.

'Right from the joyous opening onwards, the Calidores, now joined by ... Javier Perianes, grabbed hold of the energy in this music and flew with it'.

'The Calidores and Perianes communicated the splendour of Schumann’s creativity here, bringing proceedings to a joyous conclusion'.
