Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

An overture and a symphony by two musical Titans - Beethoven and Nielsen - both celebrating the human capacity for hope in the face of oppression and suffering, frame a lyrical Mozart concerto and a rarely heard tone poem by Delius.
Osmo Vänskä conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra, with soloist Michael Collins who is celebrating his 50th birthday this year. Delius's Eventyr, inspired by a collection of Norwegian folk tales published in 1841, is making only its second appearance at the Proms.
