Prom 32
  Performance Date:     Seat Amount:    
Celebrated American mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato is reunited with regular collaborator Sir Antonio Pappano to mark the 150th anniversary of Berlioz's death with a performance of the composer's sumptuous orchestral song-cycle Les nuits d'ete - a musical journey from springtime love to cruellest loss.

The National Youth Orchestra of the USA undertakes a journey of quite a different kind in Strauss's monumental An Alpine Symphony, whose vast orchestral forces and massive soundscapes conjure up the craggy drama of the Bavarian Alps.

The concert opens with a new work, by Benjamin Beckman, one of the NYO-USA's two Apprentice Composers.
