Prom 12
  Performance Date:     Seat Amount:    
Following her exciting Proms debut with the BBC Symphony Orchestra last year, rising young American conductor Karina Canellakis returns to direct the orchestra in two 20th-century Russian masterpieces.

Although composed just three years before his death, Rachmaninov's Symphonic Dances pulse with exhilarating rhythmic energy, while Shostakovich's much-loved First Cello Concerto features Alisa Weilerstein in the solo part originally composed for the great cellist Mstislav Rostropovich.

Violence and tenderness battle in Beethoven's Coriolan overture and a UK premiere by American composer Andrew Norman completes the programme
