Prom 05
The BBC National Orchestra of Wales makes its first Proms appearance of the season, with Principal Conductor Thomas Søndergard, in a programme of big themes and even bigger melodies.

Sibelius's single-movement Seventh Symphony compresses all the intensity of a conventional symphony into around 20 minutes. That intensity only builds with the tempestuous extremes of Rachmaninov's Second Piano Concerto, the first in our cycle of the composer's complete piano concertos, and the visceral rage of Shostakovich's Symphony No. 10, a horrifying portrait of life in Stalin's Russia.

Brilliant young Uzbek pianist Behzod Abduraimov, who made an exciting Proms debut in Rachmaninov's Third Piano Concerto last year, returns as soloist.
