Panic is a concertante work for alto saxophone, jazz drum kit, woodwinds, brass and percussion by Harrison Birtwistle. It was written in 1995 and premiered as part of the Last Night of the Proms on 16 September 1995 at the Royal Albert Hall, London. At the premiere the solo saxophone part was played by John Harle, the drum kit by Paul Clarvis and the BBC Symphony Orchestra was conducted by Andrew Davis. It was commissioned by John Drummond in his last season as director of The Proms.
While Harrison Birtwistle has long been established as a composer of major works for the theater, he has maintained a connection to the humbler spheres of vocal and chamber music, writing modestly scaled works that, in substance and mood, are rarefied, reflective, and intimate.
