Prom 15: Smetana, Prokofiev, Dvorak

With Penny Gore.

Jiri Belohlavek conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra in Dvorak's passionate 7th symphony and Vadim Gluzman makes his debut at the Proms as the soloist in Prokofiev's Violin Concerto No.1.

George Szell's orchestration of Smetana's autobiographical and poignant first string quartet, 'From My Life' makes its first appearance at the Proms tonight, as does tonight's tonight's artist, Vadim Gluzman. He joins the BBC Symphony Orchestra to perform Prokofiev's magical first Violin Concerto. And from the fairy-tale romance of the latter to the dark passion of Dvorak's Seventh Symphony - its premiere was directed here in London by the composer himself.

Presented by Sara Mohr-Pietsch.
