In 2022 Yunchan Lim became the youngest ever winner of the Van Cliburn Competition, America’s most distinguished contest for outstanding pianists. He makes his Proms debut tonight with the BBC Symphony Orchestra under Paavo Järvi, performing Beethoven’s final piano concerto, the ‘Emperor’, a work of heroism and virtuosity in which the soloist brings order to a world of sound and fury. The dashing final chapter of Bruckner’s Symphony No. 1 proved enough to herald a major symphonic career, but the programme opens at an opposite extreme, with Estonian composer Erkki-Sven Tüür’s Aditus (‘entrance’ or ‘approach’), a sizzling opener of existential, expressionistic drama.
