Brahms - A German Requiem - T0316695593Sacred but non-liturgical, A German Requiem is one of the most powerful works for choir and orchestra. Twenty-one years after Sir Roger Norrington directed the first British performance on period instruments, American conductor Marin Alsop, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and an 80-strong chorus explore Brahms's 1868 masterpiece in the context of his relationship with Robert Schumann and Schumann's widow, Clara. Schumann's Fourth Symphony and Brahms's Tragic Overture act as preludes to a work of great seriousness. Finish time: 21:55Performer Rachel Harnisch (soprano). Performer Henk Neven (baritone). Company Choir of the Enlightenment. Company Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. Conductor Marin Alsop.

Cage Centenary Celebration - T1694164995To mark the centenary of John Cage's birth, Ilan Volkov has curated a programme that reflects the composer's iconoclastic thinking, fertile imagination and arresting humour. John Tilbury, who has for decades been associated with Cage's work tonight plays the exquisitely beautiful Concerto for Prepared Piano and Orchestra. Cassette players and plucked cactuses are just two examples of the blindingly original yet almost naively simple thinking that saw Cage - wittingly or otherwise - upturn practically every musical rule in the book. Finish time approx. 23:15Performer John Tilbury (piano/prepared piano). Performer Frank Denyer (piano). Performer Aki Takahashi (piano). Performer Christian Wolff (piano). Performer David Behrman (live electronics). Performer Takehisa Kosugi (live electronics). Performer Keith Rowe. Performer Vicki Bennett. Performer Steve Beresford. Performer Adam Bohman.

Brahms - Symphony No 3 & Piano Concerto No 1 - T1947084690The Chamber Orchestra of Europe is celebrating its 30th anniversary with two years of Brahms under Bernard Haitink, and brings a pair of concertos and a pair of symphonies to the Proms. Haitink describes the COE as 'a group of exceptionally talented musicians. As true chamber musicians, they are used to listening to each other, without being exclusively focused on the conductor. This matches exactly the idea I have of conducting an orchestra.' After Brahms's relatively mellow Third Symphony, one of the world's best-loved pianists performs a work boiling over with youthful passions. The same musicians return with more Brahms in Prom 49. Finish time: approx. 21:00Performer Emanuel Ax (piano). Company Chamber Orchestra of Europe. Conductor Bernard Haitink.

BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra - T01723468867This late-night mixed platter of English and American Experimental traditions opens with John Cage's metallic First Construction - whose eight anvils and four car brake-drums resonate with Mosolov's The Foundry earlier this evening. Cornelius Cardew's Bun No. 1 recalls a composer known as much for his political as for his musical activism. Howard Skempton, a co-founder with Cardew of the experimental Scratch Orchestra, and Morton Feldman, whose music Cardew championed in Europe, complete the line-up. Finish time: approx. 23:20Conductor Ilan Volkov. Company BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. Performer John Tilbury (piano).

The English Concert - T0504057706Based on Milton and miraculously composed within a month of Messiah (Prom 68), Handel's Samson opens with Israel's former champion blinded and imprisoned but ends in triumph as he topples the temple of Dagon down upon the feasting Philistines and, through his suicide, sets his people free. In the 250th anniversary of the composer's death, the hero's heartbreaking lament over his lost sight, 'Total eclipse! No sun, no moon, all dark amidst the blaze of noon!' - gains added poignancy from the knowledge that Handel himself would soon go blind. Baroque specialist Harry Bicket makes his Proms debut conducting a starry line-up of British singers, several making their second appearance this season. Approx finish time: 22:20Performer Susan Gritton (Dalila). Performer Iestyn Davies (Micah). Performer Mark Padmore (Samson). Performer Neal Davies (Manoa). Performer Christopher Purves (Harapha). Performer Lucy Crowe (Israelite woman/Philsitine woman/Virgin). Performer Ben Johnson (Israelite man/Philistine man/Messenger). Company Choir of the English Concert. Company The New Company.
