Schumann, Schoenberg and Mozart
Omer Meir Wellber makes his Proms debut as the BBC Philharmonic's newly appointed Chief Conductor Designate. South Korean pianist Yeol Eum Son joins them as soloist in Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 15 in B flat major - with its intricate wind writing and lively hunting-horn finale. Schumann's mould-breaking Fourth Symphony, with its opening journey from darkness to blazing light, is paired with Schoenberg's revolutionary Five Orchestral Piece and Paul Ben-Haim's 1940 Symphony No. 1 - an emotive musical statement at a time of international conflict.
