Proms 2022: Last Night cancelled

Following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, the final two concerts of this year’s Proms season have been cancelled as a mark of respect. Therefore, the last of this year’s planned new works, James B. Wilson‘s 1922, will not now take place, effectively bringing to an end my coverage of this year’s premières.

As usual, you can continue to express your view about each première using the polls which you can find in the individual articles about each piece, and all together on the Proms Premières poll results page. If you haven’t done so already, be sure to cast your vote for each piece; i’ll keep the polls open for the next fortnight, in order to allow time for all the works to get a decent turnout, and then i’ll report back about how you all voted.

I believe the Queen would have wanted for the Last Night to go ahead. She cared and loved her subjects and would have been dismayed at the unhappiness that the cancellation caused..
