The atmospheric Late Night Proms present a rich seam of music and artists that might not otherwise be heard at the Proms.

There are Proms debuts for Jamie Cullum (26 August, broadcast on BBC Four the following evening), the Penguin Cafe (8 September) and pioneering Iraqi guitarist and singer Ilham Al Madfai in the first-ever BBC Radio 3 World Routes Academy concert (9 August).

Maria João Pires opens the series with a solo Chopin recital (21 July), and there are chances to hear an evening of English and American experimental music from the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra with Ilan Volkov and pianist John Tilbury (20 August); Stravinsky from the BBC Singers and London Sinfonietta (4 August); and arias and duets by Vivaldi and his contemporaries with Ensemble Matheus and Jean-Christophe Spinosi (6 September).

George Benjamin celebrates his 50th-birthday year with the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group (6 August) and spiritual vocal and choral highlights include Arvo Pärt's St John Passion (17 August) and Pergolesi's Stabat Mater (2 September).
