Last Night of the Proms - T0710085534

Sir Andrew Davis, the much-loved former Chief Conductor of the BBC Symphony Orchestra and a veteran steersman of the Last Night, returns to direct the greatest annual party in classical music. The popular nautical theme of traditional favourites by Henry Wood and Thomas Arne is extended in Stanford's Songs of the Sea, featuring star Canadian baritone Gerald Finley. Another British choral classic, Blest Pair of Sirens - honouring the 'harmonious sisters, Voice and Verse' - joins Jerusalem in the centenary year of Hubert Parry's death. There's a dash of Broadway in the touching 'Soliloquy' from Rodgers and Hammerstein's Carousel, in which the wife-battering Billy finds new eloquence while vowing to change his ways, and a more mischievous streak in Milhaud's delightful suite Scaramouche. Roxanna Panufnik's new commission rounds off a series of over 40 world, UK or London premieres this season, continuing the forward-looking vision of Proms founder-conductor Henry Wood.

Elgar - The Dream of Gerontius - T1034016473

Sir Simon Rattle conducts the second of two performances by the Vienna Philharmonic, completing a Proms triptych of Elgar's great oratorios, spread across recent seasons, with arguably the greatest of them all: The Dream of Gerontius. This is spiritual inquiry at its most musically intoxicating and ecstatic - a work that reaches after the same mystic transcendence as Wagner's Parsifal. The BBC Proms Youth Choir returns for its fourth festival appearance, joining soloists Toby Spence and Roderick Williams, with Czech mezzo-soprano Magdalena Kozena as the Angel. Finish time approx. 21:40Performer Magdalena Kozena (mezzo-soprano). Performer Toby Spence (tenor). Performer Roderick Williams (baritone). Company BBC Proms Youth Choir.

Beethoven - Symphony No. 9 - T0830351435

A highlight of every season in recent Proms history, Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 this year returns to its once-traditional slot on the penultimate night - a symphonic finale before the musical party that is the Last Night. Giving their second performance ?this summer, the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra and conductor Riccardo Chailly are joined by an international cast of soloists for this audacious musical testament of faith and unity across all nations and creeds. When Mahler later said that a symphony should 'embrace the whole universe', it's hard to imagine he wasn't thinking of Beethoven's mighty 'Choral' Symphony. There will be no interval. Finish time approx. 20:55.Performer Christina Landshamer (soprano). Performer Gerhild Romberger (mezzo-soprano). Performer Steve Davislim (tenor). Performer Dmitry Belosselskiy (bass).

The Last Night begins with a celebratory new work by Anna Clyne and includes a rare performance of Britten's 1967 overture for chorus and orchestra The Building of the House, a touch of Broadway magic and the sound of a glass ceiling being broken as Marin Alsop takes charge of her first Last Night. Nigel Kennedy and Joyce DiDonato are the star soloists in a programme that picks up sea-faring themes from Bantock and George Lloyd and includes a translatlantic flavour. Finish time: approx. 22:40Performer Joyce DiDonato (mezzo-soprano). Performer Nigel Kennedy (violin). Company BBC Symphony Chorus. Company BBC Symphony Orchestra. Conductor Marin Alsop.

Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra - Haydn & R. Strauss - T1491187918

The doyen of European conductors presents favourite repertoire with an ensemble closely associated with the history and traditions of orchestral music. The last of Haydn's symphonies, written while he was living in London, proved an instant critical and commercial success. Not so the Strauss, part-elegy for Mahler, part-celebration of the composer himself. Mingling childhood memories of a schoolboy mountaineering expedition with a deeper vision of man's place on earth, the work was received rather sniffily in Britain until dedicated interpreters such as Bernard Haitink arrived to change all that. Finish time approx. 21:35Company Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. Conductor Bernard Haitink.

With performers ranged around the Arena and Gallery as well as the main stage, Sir John Eliot Gardiner and his Monteverdi Choir return to the music with which they made their Proms debut in 1968, now joined by the expert period instrumentalists of the English Baroque Soloists, and with the additional brass forces of His Majestys Sagbutts and Cornetts.
