Richard Rogers: You'll Never Walk Alone - Last Night of the BBC Proms 2012
Tenor soloist Joseph Calleja, choirs and audience join in the popular anthem from Rodgers and Hammerstein's musical, Carousel, 'You'll Never Walk Alone'special guests violinist Nicola Benedetti and tenor Jospeh Calleja.
The year's biggest musical party at the end of the world's greatest musical festival in what is a special summer for London promises to be a special event. Since taking the nation by storm as the 2004 BBC Young Musician of the Year, Scottish-born Nicola Benedetti has enhanced her reputation as one of Britain's most innovative and creative young violinists and tonight she's playing Bruch's luscious Violin Concerto, a piece often voted the nation's favourite. Also on stage is Joseph Calleja, the Maltese tenor who sings with the grace and elegance of the voices of a bygone era. In his last concert as chief conductor of the BBC Symphony Orchestra, Jiri Belohlavek brings with him two works by fellow Czechs - Dvorak and Suk. All this before the familiar home-grown classics bring down the curtain in time-honoured fashion.
