CLICK TO WATCH: 'Five Telegrams' premiere performance at the BBC Proms 2018

4 September 2018

A newly released film from the BBC mixes indoor and outdoor footage of the premiere of Anna Meredith's 'Five Telegrams', featuring the National Youth Choir. 

The most spectacular Classical premiere of 2018, 'Five Telegrams' features Anna Meredith's music in synchronisation with vast animated graphics and lighting designs from special effects production company 59 Productions.

The lighting was displayed both inside and outside the Royal Albert Hall, but not on the same night. The outside lighting display was given at a special curtain raiser event on the night before the First Night of the Proms; the indoor lighting display accompanied the concert premiere on the First Night itself. 

Now the BBC have released a film mixing footage from both nights, allowing viewers to see both indoor and and outdoor performances combined into one.

'Five Telegrams' is performed by the National Youth Choir, the BBC Proms Youth Ensemble and the BBC Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Sakari Oramo.
