National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain - T484762422Messiaen's ecstatic, Eastern-influenced celebration of love is framed by a BBC commission from one of America's rising talents and Anna Meredith's acclaimed tour de force of clapping, stamping, singing and body percussion, first performed earlier this year by NYO members and commissioned for the PRS for Music Foundation's New Music 20x12 programme as part of the Cultural Olympiad. Varese's Tuning Up is a tongue-in-cheek parody based on the familiar orchestral strains usually heard on stage only before the conductor arrives. Finish time approx. 22:05Performer Cynthia Millar (ondes martenot). Performer Joanna MacGregor (piano). Company National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain. Conductor Vasily Petrenko.

Simon Bolivar Symphony Orchestra plays Mahler - T124110888Now Music Director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Gustavo Dudamel - known by his own musicians as 'the Dude' - joins his old friends in the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra and some mightily distinguished guests to tackle a colossus of the standard repertoire. Writing for vast forces including offstage brass, two solo singers and a large choir, Mahler takes listeners on a spectacular journey through the entire gamut of emotions. Beginning at the graveside, he remembers happier, busier and (spiritually) emptier times on the way to an apocalyptic revelation of the Day of Judgement. The promise of eternal life is then renewed in some of music's most uplifting pages. There will be no interval. Finish time: approx. 21:10Performer Miah Persson (soprano). Performer Anna Larsson (mezzo soprano). Company National Youth Choir of Great Britain. Company Simon Bolivar Symphony Orchestra. Conductor Gustavo Dudamel.

National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain - T0931903335The National Youth Orchestra's annual Prom brings two of the greatest feats of brilliant 19th-century French orchestration - Paul Dukas's thrilling mix of witty narrative and symphonic momentum and the symphony that made the young Hector Berlioz's name, with its nightmarish storyline. The orchestra's summer programme also the London premiere of Julian Anderson's capricious, contrast-packed showcase for each orchestral section in turn. Finish time: approx. 21:30Conductor Semyon Bychkov. Company National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain.

BBC Philharmonic - T1287855870The BBC Philharmonic's Italian-born Chief Conductor Gianandrea Noseda pays tribute to his native land - and continues our cycle of Mendelssohn symphonies - with the sun-drenched work that the 21-year-old Mendelssohn composed while holidaying in Rome. Inspired by his own student days in Rome, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies's palindromically entitled Roma amor is a serenade to the city. Our cycle of Respighi's Roman trilogy opens with his vivid tableaux celebrating the capital's famous pines. Rossini's operatic retelling of the Cinderella story was his third stage-work for Rome's Teatro Valle. Approx. finish time: 22:00Performer Vivica Genaux (mezzo soprano). Company Brass players from the Royal Northern College of Music. Conductor Gianandrea Noseda.
