About this event

In his first Prom as Principal Guest Conductor of the BBC Philharmonic, John Storgårds bookends his programme with two Sibelius symphonies.

Delius’s decadent Cynara serves as a vocal upbeat to Grieg’s evergreen piano concerto. The remaining element is new to these shores, an exciting and dynamic work from the prolific, unpredictable doyen of Nordic symphonists.
