Nocturne on a golden piano

Pianist Stephen Hough performs Chopin's "Nocturne in E flat major" on Queen Victoria's piano as an encore at the BBC Proms 2019. Queen Victoria’s ‘Erard’ piano, loaned from the Royal Collection by Her Majesty the Queen, is heard for the first time outside Buckingham Palace at the BBC Proms. Stephen Hough and Alessandro Fisher join the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and conductor, Adám Fischer at the Royal Albert Hall. The Prom is a celebration of the 200th anniversary of the births of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.

Bebe & Dorme

O local é Miramar, na orla costeira de Vila Nova de Gaia. Pinturas com as inscrições “Adriano Malheiro Caloteiro” surgiram com abundância em finais de 2018 nas paredes da região, numa extensa área multi- concelho que vai de Mafamude a Silvalde. “Paula-e-Adriano-Malheiro-Caloteiros-15.000euros”, “Adriano-Malheiro-Caloteiro”, “Casal-Malheiro-Caloteiros-2.500euros” são algumas das dezenas de inscrições que figuram nos muros da região: praia da Granja, rotunda na Feiteira, cemitério de Mafamude ou Nogueira da Regedoura são locais onde poderá ver o fenómeno com os seus próprios olhos. Muitas já foram apagadas, mas o/a(s) autor/es/as tornaram a pintá-las por cima, no mesmo local. Outra vez. E outra vez. E outra vez. Este estranho fenômeno chamou à atenção de David Bruno, que rapidamente iniciou uma investigação para tentar perceber: “Porquê”? Pesquisou, Contactou. Perguntou. Ficou na mesma.

Don't Let Me Down

Written by John as an expression of his love for Yoko Ono, the song is heartfelt and passionate. As John told Rolling Stone magazine in 1970, “When it gets down to it, when you’re drowning, you don’t say, ‘I would be incredibly pleased if someone would have the foresight to notice me drowning and come and help me,’ you just scream.”

During filming on the roof of Apple, two days after the recording of the track, the band played ‘Don’t Let Me Down’ right after doing two versions of 'Get Back’ and it led straight into 'I’ve Got A Feeling’. Michael Lindsay-Hogg was once again directing a Beatles’ shoot. He and Paul met regularly at the tail end of 1968, while Hogg was directing The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus, to discuss the filming of The Beatles’ session in January. By the time that fateful Thursday came around, the penultimate day of January would be the last time The Beatles ever played together in front of any kind of audience.

This is not the version of ‘Don’t Let Me Down’ heard on the single but the version from the Let It Be… Naked album – a composite of both versions that were performed on the roof of Apple in Savile Row

La Forza del Destino

The Radio Philharmonic Orchestra led by Antony Hermus perform the ouverture from the opera 'La forza del destino' by Giuseppe Verdi during The Sunday Morning Concert of Sunday the 1st of September 2019.

2019/2020 is a very special year for The Sunday Morning Concert: the new season marks the 25th anniversary of the AVROTROS concert series! To celebrate, the orchestra played a throwback programme during the first concert of the season on the 1st of September: the music played (Copland, Verdi, Prokofiev and Tchaikovsky) was the same music that got played during the first edition in 1994.
