Ailish Tynan at the BBC Proms
Ailish Tynan returns to the BBC Proms on 5 August for a concert with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, conducted by Tadaaki Otaka. The Prom, British Composers, includes works by Walton, Vaughan Williams, Elgar, with Ailish performing Grace Williams' Fairest of Stars. The concert is broadcast live on BBC Radio 3.
This is Ailish's twelfth appearance at the BBC Proms, with previous highlights being a first night appearance for Chabrier's Ode à la musique with the BBC Symphony Orchestra2009; Gliere's Concerto for Coloratura Soprano with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra in 2011 and Bella in Tippett's The Midsummer Marriage with the BBC Symphony Orchestra in 2013.
“Irish soprano Ailish Tynan sang the fiendishly difficult wordless solo part with astonishing facility and – most importantly – with a coquettish twinkle in her eye... but with Tynan's wit and charm it brought the house down.”
