Everyone I've spoken to - friends and colleagues alike - thinks last Saturday's event was one of the best Last Nights ever. And conductor David Robertson has come in for universal praise.
During the coming week on the blog we'll be hearing from our regular bloggers, Proms Controller Roger Wright, Roly Taylor (Interactive Editor), and Abigail Appleton (Head of Speech Programming), but we've also asked Matt Woodward, TV director of the Last Night to let us have his thoughts, as well as Oliver Macfarlane, series editor of the Proms TV coverage. Watch this space!
If you were following the Last Night on Twitter, you might like to know that you were involved in what was one of the most successful Twitter parties held by the BBC to date.
Some hard facts about this year's Proms:
In the Interactive team we're still doing the sums, but the headlines are that the number of unique users and page impressions on /proms was up again - the ukulele pages were especially popular!
Visits to the Radio 3 blog doubled every month from June to August. So thanks for following us - do come back and come back often, as there will be lots more inside track on what we're doing at Radio 3 and BBC Classical Music TV in the weeks to come: the Radio 3 party does continue after the Proms - for example this week on Radio 3 you can hear more recordings from the 2009 Edinburgh Festival; Afternoon on 3 is running a series on music inspired by Philosophy; and The Essay invites writers to talk about Dr Johnson, and in fact tomorrow night I won't be missing David Crystal, who speculates on what The (original) Doctor would have thought of wikis and the web.
