Family Matinee: The Big Proms Bear Hunt - T705059812We're going on a bear hunt! There's fun for all the family as Michael Rosen takes his much-loved book as the starting point for a whole new set of adventures. Along the way, illustrator Tony Ross conjures up pictures live on big screens and the RLPO and children from In Harmony plunder the music of composers including Mussorgsky, Grieg and Stravinsky to find the most exciting, most dreamy and most scary tunes, all bound together with original music by Ian Stephens. And there will be lots of opportunities for the audience to join in. Finish time: approx. 17:50Performer Michael Rosen (storyteller). Performer Tony Ross (illustrator). Company In Harmony Liverpool. Company Liverpool Philharmonic Children's Choirs. Company Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. Conductor Matthew Coorey.

Cameron Carpenter plays Bach - T01360218036The first of two matinee appearances by the flamboyantly postmodern, genre-bending artist, equally at home on a Hammond, a Wurlitzer, a software-reliant virtual pipe organ or a monumental acoustic instrument. Cameron Carpenter made his UK solo debut at the Royal Albert Hall in 2008. His set then included an improvised sonata based on great British television themes. In his two consecutive afternoon concerts he concentrates on J. S. Bach, combining original works with transgressive transformations, not forgetting his own improvisational tribute to the master. There will be no interval. Finish time approx. 17:00Performer Cameron Carpenter (organ).

Organ Recital - Thierry Escaich - T01405035434The second of this year's organ recitals is given by the mercurial organist of St-Etienne-du-Mont in Paris, a composer and improviser of renown who is new to the Royal Albert Hall and its mighty instrument. His programme contrasts chorales by Bach, Reger and Franck, recalls the spirit of Bach in his own Evocation III, and concludes with an extended improvisation in homage to Liszt. Finish time: approx. 17:00. There will be no interval

Berliner Philharmoniker - T605470237In the first half of their second Prom, Sir Simon Rattle and the Berlin Philharmonic pair late works by two of Germany's greatest late-Romantics - 'Richard the First' and 'Richard the Third', as the conductor Hans von Bülow rather wickedly called them (quipping that, after Wagner, there could be no 'Richard the Second'). After the interval come the sensational sonic adventures by the three great musical pioneers of early-20th-century Vienna. Celebrated Finnish soprano Karita Mattila returns to the Proms as soloist in Strauss's opulently nostalgic reflections on life's last days. Finish time: approx. 21:40Conductor Simon Rattle (Sir). Performer Karita Mattila (soprano). Company Berliner Philharmoniker.

George Crumb - T0559667142We celebrate the 80th birthday of George Crumb, a great American original whose hauntingly beautiful scores draw on many disparate traditions, often exploring novel performance techniques and involving symbolic or theatrical elements. Marking the 40th anniversary of the first manned mission to the Moon, Night of the Four Moons was actually composed during the Apollo 11 flight and ends - in a homage to Haydn's 'Farewell' Symphony - with the performers representing the 'Music of Mankind' leaving the stage to a lone cellist, portraying the 'Music of the Spheres'. Like Ancient Voices of Children, it sets verses by Federico García Lorca. In Vox balaenae, a flautist singing into the instrument imitates the cry of a humpback whale, while all three performers wear masks to efface their human presence. Approx finish time: 23:30. Broadcast Live on BBC Radio 3.Performer Claire Booth (soprano). Performer Hilary Summers (mezzo-soprano). Group/Band Nash Ensemble. Conductor Diego Masson.
