About this event

Vladimir Jurowski and the London Philharmonic Orchestra trace the development of the tone-poem in works inspired by Nietzsche, Shelley and the Finnish epic, the Kalevala.

Natural and supernatural imagery collide in the great sunrise of Richard Strauss’s Also sprach Zarathustra, the fire and snow of Granville Bantock’s 1902 tone-poem The Witch of Atlas and the rainbows of Sibelius’s fantasy Pohjola’s Daughter. Serbian-born Anika Vavic makes her Proms debut in Prokofiev’s crisp and virtuosic Piano Concerto No. 3, premiered in Chicago in 1921 with the composer at the keyboard.

Watch and listen to more piano concertos at the Proms.
