Thomas Dausgaard conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra in Tchaikovsky's 6th Symphony, contemporary Danish music and Shostakovich's 1st Cello Concerto with soloist Daniel Muller-Schott.

Thomas Dausgaard and the BBC Symphony Orchestra present a night of firsts. Making its UK premiere is maverick Rued Langgaard's tuba-rich 11th Symphony of 1945. There's also the UK premiere of octogenarian Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen's Incontri. Daniel Muller-Schott makes his Poms debut as the soloist in Shostakovich's hyper-concentrated 1st Cello Concerto. And the Prom ends with Tchaikovsky's radical and deeply emotional 6th Symphony.
