I’ve not been enthralled by the main Proms this year. But I have in the main enjoyed the Saturday afternoon Proms at Cadogan Hall. Today’s was part of the celebration of Pierre Boulez’s 90th Birthday. Somebody, I have to admit, I haven’t really listened to. These Proms for me are a better mix than the main Proms. They concentrate on shorter pieces and mix in new composers and I’ve found most these new pieces interesting and challenging. Today’s was no exception. I walked away with a new found respect for Boulez.
