Leeds International Piano Competition-winner Sunwook Kim makes his Proms debut in Beethoven's dramatic Piano Concerto No 3 in a concert that begins with the dazzling brass fanfares and bustling street-life of Brno as translated into music in Janacek's 1926 Sinfonietta.

An edited version of this Prom will be broadcast on Sunday 18th August at 2pm.
