Wennäkoski at the Proms

Lotta Wennäkoski's new work Flounce was premiered succesfully at the Last Night of the Proms on 9 September in London. The BBC commissioned Wennäkoski to write this opening piece, and it was performed by the BBC Symphony Orchestra conducted by Sakari Oramo. According to the reviews the piece was "deft and surprising", "it may work as a concert-opener, but that’s by no means all that it is, and for that she deserves kudos and congratulations."
