Sibelius, Schubert & Zimmermann - T1282560187Sibelius's genre-bending Seventh unfolds in a continuous musical gesture of expansive, if characteristically enigmatic, nobility. Centenary composer Bernd Alois Zimmermann's Symphony in One Movement is another assault on tradition that kicks against Wagner's rousing overture to The Mastersingers of Nuremberg. Four popular Schubert songs and his technically formidable 'Wanderer' Fantasy get a colourful orchestral upscalingPerformer Elizabeth Watts (soprano). Performer Louis Lortie (piano).

Prokofiev - The Piano Concertos - T595424108All five Prokofiev piano concertos in one concert - it's a feat conductor Valery Gergiev achieved in 2012 at the Mariinsky and now brings to the Proms, along with three of his original pianists. It's a rare opportunity to hear three international soloists back-to-back, to compare styles and approaches, as well as to explore the composer's later, lesser-known concertos with their newly expressive tenderness. Daniil Trifonov, the prodigious young winner of the Tchaikovsky and Chopin competitions, shares the bill with his teacher Sergei Babayan, while Alexei Volodin tackles the rarely heard Fourth, commissioned, like Ravel's Piano Concerto for the Left Hand, by the one-armed pianist Paul Wittgenstein. Finish time approx 22:20Performer Daniil Trifonov (piano). Performer Sergei Babayan (piano). Performer Alexei Volodin (piano). Company London Symphony Orchestra. Conductor Valery Gergiev.

Durufle, Ravel and Simon Holt - T1942372939Ravel's La valse turns the Viennese waltz into a darkly tinged rhapsody, while his Valses nobles et sentimentales reflects the iconic dance in softer tones. Durufle's Requiem is the musical cousin of Faure's more familiar Requiem and anchors its 20th-century harmonies in the same arching plainchant melodies of the past. Flute virtuoso Emmanuel Pahud joins the orchestra for the world premiere of Simon Holt's flute concerto Morpheus Wakes - written for Pahud himself, who represents the god of dreaming 'as if slowly waking from adeep, troubled sleep'. Finish time approx. 21:45Performer Emmanuel Pahud (flute). Performer Gerald Finley (baritone). Performer Ruby Hughes (soprano). Company BBC National Chorus of Wales.

Kronos Quartet - T536679805For almost 40 years, the Kronos Quartet has been reinventing the string quartet, regularly turning it into a multimedia experience. The group's first Proms appearances begins with high-octance Syrian folk-pop and ends with a Kronos commission blending classical strings with ethnic Balkan instruments, shouts, foot-stomping, bells and electronic overdubs. In between, varied fare from the group's eclectic repertoire plus a BBC commission inspired by the work of Delia Derbyshire of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop (responsible for the realisation of Ron Grainer's Doctor Who theme). Listen out, too, for the otherworldly Kronos arrangement of a Scandinavian folk lament. There will be no interval. Finish time: 23:15
