HAMBURG. At the Germany tour opening of this year’s “Night of the Proms”, stars of yesterday and today will perform with orchestra and choir at the first of two concerts in Hamburg. Besides music legends like Roger Hodgson and Peter Cetera, the show will also feature the young talent, Emily Bear. 

Everything seems the same, but this year there is also a breath of fresh air through the Barclaycard Arena. This is to be noted in the overture from the film “La La Land”: behind the piano sits the only 16-year-old American Emily Bear, the youngest ever Proms artist and the discovery of the evening. …

She thrills with Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy” or puts to music the love story of two spectators in a spontaneous piano improvisation.
