Part of the BBC Proms. In his first Prom as Principal Guest Conductor of the BBC Philharmonic, John Storgards bookends his programme with two Sibelius symphonies. Delius's decadent Cynara serves as a vocal upbeat to Grieg's evergreen piano concerto. The remaining element is new to these shores, an exciting and dynamic work from the prolific, unpredictable doyen of Nordic symphonists. Finish time approx. 21:20Performers Steven Osborne (piano), Roderick Williams (baritone).
