Editor's Note - Today sees the launch of the 2012 BBC Proms, an eight week season spanning the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics, welcoming an international line-up of leading orchestras, conductors and soloists from the UK and around the world.

Over on the Radio 3 Blog, Roger Wright, Director BBC Proms writes,

At the heart of the Proms is the scale of the event, and it's something which puts quality and accessibility together. It is, simply, the best music festival in the world.

Roger Wright also talks about the forthcoming season, its ethos and the experience of the first night concert in this audio interview for the About the BBC blog.
