BBC Proms, 2011 Season, Prom 53 Episode 2 of 2


Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Louise Fryer

Sir Colin Davis conducts an orchestra of brilliant young musicians in a programme which ranges from Stravinsky's so-called 'war symphony' via the heady orientalism of Ravel to the dramatic Fate motif of Tchaikovsky's Fourth Symphony. The leading American mezzo soprano, Susan Graham joins them for Ravel's vision of the Orient, which is by turns sensuous, voluptuous and erotic.
