This chronology of first performances at the Henry Wood Promenade Concerts highlights just how important the "Proms" have been and continue to be as a platform for new music, and the key role they have played in British musical life over the last century. Each entry gives details of the performance date, composer, title of work, conductor, orchestra and soloists, from Cyrill Kistler's "Chromatic Concert Valses" in August 1895 to Gerard McBurney's orchestration of Shostakovich's "Jazz Suite No.2" in September 2000. Whether researching the premieres of a favourite composer, assessing the musical tastes and trends of a particular decade, or simply wanting to refresh the memory of an individual performance, this volume provides readers with an easy-to-use reference source for Britain's best-loved concert series.
