Prom 14
  Performance Date:     Seat Amount:    
Proms favourite John Wilson - who returns later this season with his John Wilson Orchestra (Proms 34 & 35) - tonight makes his first appearance at the Proms as the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra's new Associate Guest Conductor.

Here he swaps Hollywood and Broadway classics for another of his personal passions: the great British symphonic classics.

Holst's galactic suite conjures up the epic scope of a movie blockbuster in luminous music of infinite vistas, while Vaughan Williams's enigmatic final symphony also revels in an augmented sound-world: it's a piece Wilson sees as a suitably radical counterpart to The Planets.
