Here’s the backstage photo after Martyn Brabbins’ 60th birthday Prom, with his remarkable commission of 15 composers to write an updated version of the Enigma Variations for the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. 9 of the composers made the event – David Sawer, John Pickard, CM, Martyn, Anthony Payne, Sally Beamish, Judith Weir. Wim Henderickx, Richard Blackford and Dai Fujikura. The theme was composed anonymously, and the others involved were Kalevi Aho, Harrison Birtwistle, Gavin Bryars, Brett Dean and Iris ter Schiphorst.
