From the New World

Music and artists from both American continents in tonight's concert from the Royal Albert Hall. The Prom opens with Dvořák's symphonic masterpiece From the New World, and the second half includes Copland's iconic Fanfare for the Common Man and Joan Tower's Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman. Works by Villa-Lobos and Ginastera add some attractive Latin American colour in a concert marking the first visit to the Proms by the Sao Paulo Symphony Orchestra as well as the return of distinguished Brazilian pianist Nelson Freire and conductor Marin Alsop.
