Last Night of the Proms - Part 1

Live from the Royal Albert Hall Katie Derham introduces the final concert of the 2013 Proms season.

History is in the making as conductor Marin Alsop takes charge of her first Last Night. Violinist Nigel Kennedy and mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDinato are the star soloists in a programme that includes Vaughan Williams' Lark Ascending and arias by Massenet, Handel and Rossini. The concert begins with a celebratory new piece by composer Anna Clyne and there are works by anniversary composers Wagner and Britten, as well Bernstein's Chichester Psalms for chorus and orchestra.

Via the Red-button viewers can also see performances from the Last Night celebrations around the UK in Hyde Park London, Caerphilly in South Wales, Titanic Slipways in Belfast and Glasgow Green.
