Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra II

The second concert from Mariss Jansons and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra pays tribute to the 150th anniversary of the birth of Proms founder conductor Henry Wood. A passionate champion of new music, Wood gave the UK premieres of many major works featured this season, including both Sibelius's turbulent Symphony No. 1 and Prokofiev's Second Violin Concerto - played here by Georgian soloist Lisa Batiashvili - whose initial simplicity and directness give way to spiky virtuosity in the finale. The concert closes in Vienna, with the waltz-filled and lushly orchestrated suite from Richard Strauss's popular opera Der Rosenkavalier.
