Judith Bingham - World Premiere At BBC Proms

17th July, Royal Albert Hall
Judith Bingham has composed a major new work for solo organ to be premiered at the Royal Albert Hall as part of the BBC Proms 2011 season on Sunday 17 July. Stephen Farr will give the world premiere of The Everlasting Crown, on the famous Royal Albert Hall organ. This work imagines a crown, ancient, gold, and set with seven famous gemstones. Each gemstone represents an aspect of royalty and ruling: Atahualpa’s Emerald — divinity; the pearl called La Pelegrina — vulnerability and isolation; the Orlov Diamond — excessive ambition; the Russian Spinel — murder; King Edward’s Sapphire — piety; the Timur Ruby and the Koh-i-Nûr — conquest and spectacle. It is a crown for the monarch of the human race, with each stone representing an aspect of royalty, good and bad.

To wear a crown enchased with pearl and gold,
Whose virtues carry with it life and death.
(Marlowe, Tamburlaine the Great,1590)

The premiere will conclude a concert including major works for organ by Alain, Liszt and Bach, starting at 4pm. For further details and tickets, go to the BBC Proms website.
