The Breaks: Soul Mavericks featuring Terra & Eddie, Sunni and Lagaet - T0656689972A non-stop exploration into 'the breaks' - the beat-driven music that has influenced the world of scratch DJs and b-boying/b-girling (i.e. breakdancing) since the 1970s. One of the four pillars of hip-hop culture - along with MC-ing, DJ-ing and graffiti art - breaking has developed from its original roots tobecome a global phenomenon with a virtuosity all of its own.Performer Mr Switch.

Verdi Requiem - T57860331Rising conductor Andres Orozco-Estrada continues this season's sequence of Requiems with Verdi's mighty concert-hall setting - an 'opera in church vestments'. Embracing the full gamut of human emotion, from the most tender and fragile of hopes to the visceral terror of the Day of Judgement, it's a work that transforms private grief into an astonishing public statement. An international team of soloists includes the exciting young Norwegian soprano Lise Davidsen and renowned Scottish mezzo-soprano Karen Cargill.

Berlin Philharmonic and Sir Simon Rattle Boulez and Mahler - T1978064140Sir Simon Rattle brings his Berlin Philharmonic to the Proms for two concerts, the first falling on the day the festival commemorates the towering genius that was the late Pierre Boulez. Here Boulez's kaleidoscopic Eclat forms a prelude to perhaps Gustav Mahler's most radical symphony, a work in which his musical imagination stormed new territories in its fierce harmonies and wild scoring. In the symphony's celebrated 'Night Music' serenades - eerie yet strangely calming nocturnes for orchestra, one hinging on a gently strumming guitar and mandolin - Mahler appears to look to a realm far beyond his own.

Nielsen, B Tommy Andersson & Mahler - T076458723Thomas Sondergard and the BBC NOW return for their fourth concert, opening with a suite from Nielsen's music for Oehlenschlager's play Aladdin. It's one of the composer's best-loved works, one that avoids musical cliches of the exotic Orient, conjuring scenes altogether more subtle and vivid. A major premiere by the orchestra's Composer-in- Association, B Tommy Andersson, puts organist David Goode in the spotlight and the concert concludes with the sunniest and most intimate of Mahler's symphonies - the concise No. 4, a work filled with birdsong and pastoral landscapes that features a child's-eye view of Heaven in its final movement.

Sir Simon Rattle and the Berliner Philharmoniker - T2060978542Heard most recently at the Proms in 2012, Sir Simon Rattle and the Berliner Philharmoniker return ?for the first of their two concerts this summer.. An all-Russian programme inspired by dance ?opens with Rachmaninov's Symphonic Dances - the composer's blazing 'final spark' and, for many, his finest orchestral work. Embracing jazz, plainchant and the waltz, this mercurial piece is a showcase of dramatic skill. After the interval we enter the Russian fairy-tale world of Stravinsky's The Firebird, the vivid, folk-infused ballet score for Diaghilev's Ballet Russes that established the young composer as a rising star.

Bantock, Prokofiev, Sibelius & R. Strauss - T656732078Vladimir Jurowski and the London Philharmonic Orchestra trace the development of the tone-poem in works inspired by Nietzsche, Shelley and the Finnish epic, the Kalevala. Natural and supernatural imagery collide in the great sunrise of Richard Strauss's Also sprach Zarathustra, the fire and snow of Granville Bantock's 1902 tone-poem The Witch of Atlas and the rainbows of Sibelius's fantasy Pohjola's Daughter. Serbian-born Anika Vavic makes her Proms debut in Prokofiev's crisp and virtuosic Piano Concerto No. 3, premiered in Chicago in 1921 with the composer at the keyboard.

Berliner Philharmoniker - Brahms & Lutoslawski - T01220625342Our second Berliner Philharmoniker concert sees the return of a distinguished pianist in one of the most formidable of piano concertos. Without sounding as challenging as its predecessor, Brahms's Second Piano Concerto is even bigger in scale and bristles with technical difficulties. Lutoslawski wrote his Third Symphony for another great orchestra, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra of the Solti era. Completed in the early 1980s in troubled times for the composer's native Poland, it combines experimental techniques with craftsmanship, conviction and lyricism.

Tonight the audience will be asked to choose what they would like to hear played from the range of possible options in the orchestra's capacious music library. Finish time: approx. 223:00.

Bach's sadly wayward eldest son, Wilhelm Friedemann (see Proms Chamber Music 4); the tragically short-lived Giovanni Battista Pergolesi, whose touchingly lyrical meditation on the sufferings of Christ's mother at the foot of the Cross has been winning new audiences; and the London-born Thomas Arne, once the leading British composer of his day, now known mostly as the man who wrote Rule, Britannia!

Tennis is only one of the 'games' played in Debussy's 1913 ballet, premiered by the Ballets Russes just two weeks before Stravinsky's Rite of Spring (Prom 38). Our multiple pianos focus continues with works by Mozart and Zimmermann - the latter of which quotes from both Jeux and Mozart's C major Concerto, K467. And the LPO, under its brilliant Principal Conductor, concludes with Brahms's hard-won First Symphony, composed under the burdensome shadow of Beethoven. Approx finish time: 19:00.
