Prom 37: Urban Classics Prom

A dynamic meeting of musical cultures as conductor Jules Buckley brings together the BBC Symphony Orchestra with leading performers from the UK's vibrant urban music scene. In Urban Classics' experimental fusion of musical styles, high-octane orchestral showpieces by Mosolov and Henze rub shoulders with rap, R&B and soul. 'It's a culture clash,' says Jules Buckley. 'We're taking artists from different worlds and messing with their music, putting it in an orchestral context and exploring it in a new way.'

Urban Classics from the Royal Albert Hall, London
