Urban Classic Prom - T0455421298A dynamic meeting of musical cultures as conductor Jules Buckley brings together the BBC Symphony Orchestra with leading performers from the UK's vibrant urban music scene. In Urban Classic's experimental fusion of musical styles, high-octane orchestral showpieces by Mosolov and Henze rub shoulders with rap, R&B and soul. 'It's a culture clash,' says Jules Buckley. 'We're taking artists from different worlds and messing with their music, putting it in an orchestral context and exploring it in a new way.' There will be one intervalCompany BBC Symphony Orchestra. Conductor Jules Buckley.

Elgar - The Apostles - T0408400642Leading Elgar interpreter Sir Mark Elder directs a stellar cast and large-scale choral forces, reviving a major work of the British choral tradition. Elgar conceived The Apostles as a schoolboy, but the project came to fruition only in 1903 - after both The Dream of Gerontius and a visit to Bayreuth to hear Wagner's The Ring and Parsifal. Elgar explores the inner feelings of Judas Iscariot with dramatic intensity, and Christ's anguished cry from the cross becomes a wordless lament. There will be one interval. Finish time approx. 21:15Performer David Kempster (bass-baritone/St Peter). Performer Rebecca Evans (soprano/Blessed Virgin/Angel Gabriel). Performer Alice Coote (mezzo-soprano/Mary Magdalene). Performer Paul Groves (tenor/Narrator). Performer Jacques Imbrailo (baritone/Jesus). Performer Clive Bayley (bass/Judas). Company Halle Choir. Company Halle Youth Choir.

Bridge/Brahms/Holst & Elgar - T01662782800The BBC Philharmonic's Chief Guest Conductor (who becomes Conductor Emeritus in September) continues his exploration of less-frequented corners of the repertoire, proceeding from an invigorating British concert-opener to an uncommon yet inescapably familiar concerto. Inspired by the fact that Bach and Beethoven arranged their own violin concertos for the keyboard, Dejan Lazic has done the same for the Brahms with engagingly idiomatic results. Julian Lloyd Webber is an ardent champion of Holst's Invocation. The concert ends with Elgar's affectionate sketches of 'friends pictured within' - a firm favourite that retains its own aura of mystery. Finish time: approx. 21:50Performer Dejan Lazic (piano). Performer Julian Lloyd-Webber (cello). Company BBC Philharmonic. Conductor Vassily Sinaisky.

BBC Philharmonic - T905387380The BBC Philharmonic returns with Chief Conductor Gianandrea Noseda to contrast the music of Italy and Germany. Canadian violinist James Ehnes, who has recorded all three of Bruch's violin concertos, is the soloist in the composer's most enduring contribution to the repertoire, and Sarah Tynan appears in the concluding lullaby to the Blessed Virgin Mary of Luigi Dallapiccola's ambitious Partita, the work which established the composer's international reputation. Schumann's Fourth Symphony, continuing our complete cycle in the bicentenary of the composer's birth, constitutes one of the most exhilarating works in the Romantic repertoire. Finish time: approx. 21:35Conductor Gianandrea Noseda. Company BBC Philharmonic. Performer Sarah Tynan (soprano). Performer James Ehnes (violin).

BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra - T050587445One of the most prolific, influential and instantly identifiable composers of our age, Philip Glass made an impact on the course of 20th-century music with his pioneering 'Minimalist' scores, going on to write major film scores - from Koyaanisqatsi and Kundun to The Truman Show and The Hours - and innumerable dance, theatre and operatic works. In the first Prom ever devoted exclusively to Philip Glass's music, his first major orchestral score, the 1987 Violin Concerto, is played by Gidon Kremer, who made the premiere recording, and conducted by Dennis Russell Davies, a long-term champion of Glass's music. Premiered in 2004, the 'Toltec Symphony' takes its title from the ancient pre-Columbian culture that reigned in Mesoamerica long before the coming of the Europeans, though vestiges of it still survive among the indigenous peoples of Mexico today. Approx. finish time:23:20Performer Gidon Kremer (violin). Company BBC Symphony Chorus. Conductor Dennis Russell Davies.
