One of the great orchestras of the world returns to the Proms - the Vienna Philharmonic, conducted by the legendary Bernard Haitink. Steeped in the history of the European orchestral tradition, they present a concert from two giants of Western classical music. It opens with Joseph Haydn's 104th and final symphony, written while he was staying in London and at the height of his powers, and is followed by music from Richard Strauss, who in his Alpine Symphony portrays a day spent climbing a mountain, from the foreboding of night to the glorious vision from the summit. Introduced by Petroc Trelawny.
