Paul Lewis (piano)
Mahler Chamber Orchestra
Daniel Harding (conductor)

Daniel Harding returns to the Proms after 10 years, directing the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, with which he has a long association, in a programme exploring the subtly different properties of the keys of C major and C minor. Paul Lewis is the soloist in Mozart's majestic C major Piano Concerto No 25, which contrasts with the composer's austerely beautiful Masonic Funeral Music. Two great symphonies acutely expressive of light and shade, Schumann's Second and Sibelius's Seventh, complete an imaginative and stimulating sequence of works.

This Prom will be repeated on Wednesday 31st July at 2pm.
