Tonight's Prom opens with Stravinsky's short but brilliant Fireworks, and is followed by the Concerto Grosso by Krzyzstof Penderecki, who is 80 this year, featuring a trio of cellists Leonard Elschenbroich, Daniel Muller-Schott and Arto Noras. The concerto plays with Baroque forms, the cellists playing against choirs of woodwind. The work was written in 2000 and has been championed by Dutoit in Japan, Philadelphia and Chicago. The second half of the concert features 2 French scores: Debussy's sensuous orchestrations in La Mer, and concludes with the second suite from Ravel's stunningly beautiful Daphnis and Chloe.

An edited version of this Prom will be broadcast on Monday 19th August at 2pm.
