Description

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, Katie Derham introduces the final concert of the 2015 Proms season as conductor Marin Alsop returns to lead the celebrations after her triumphant Last Night debut in 2013. Star tenor Jonas Kaufmann sings a selection of popular arias by Puccini in a program which also includes Richard Strauss's sparkling tone poem Till Eulenspiegel and Arvo Part's Credo, a crashing musical battle between good and evil performed by the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus and the BBC Singers. The remarkable 23-yearold British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor plays Shostakovich's second piano concerto and the concert begins with the world premiere of the new BBC commission Arise Athena! by the Jamaican-born composer Eleanor Alberga.
