Live from the Royal Albert Hall, Clive Anderson introduces the final concert of the 2009 Proms season. The evening gets under way with a Flourish of Fireworks by Oliver Knussen and then works by anniversary composers Purcell and Haydn feature the evening's soloists, mezzo-soprano Sarah Connolly and trumpet player Alison Balsom. The first half ends with an exotic masterpiece for chorus and orchestra by the Brazilian composer Villa-Lobos.
The BBC Singers, the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus are conducted by David Robertson. During the interval there are highlights from Proms in the Park in London, Salford, Swansea, Glasgow and Hillsborough Castle in Northern Ireland.
