ABE: Prism Rhapsody; GLENNIE/SHEPPARD: Orologeria Aureola; WEE: Dithyrambs (world première); PSATHAS: View from Olympus (world première of this new version) (recorded in Cadogan Hall, London by the BBC)

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. (BBC)
