About this event

BBC Statement 1 Sept 2011

 

We regret that as a result of sustained audience disruption within the concert hall which affected the ability to hear the music, tonight’s Israel Philharmonic Orchestra Prom was taken off air. The invitation to the Orchestra was a purely musical one, offering the opportunity to hear this fine Orchestra in conductor Zubin Metha’s 75th year, so we are disappointed that BBC Radio 3 audiences were not able to enjoy the full performance. BBC Radio 3 broadcast recordings of the same music, however the performance continued in the hall.

Throughout the concert approximately 30 people were removed by security which had been increased in anticipation of the prospect of disturbances.

Zubin Mehta returned to the Proms with an orchestra he has been conducting for 50 years and which awarded him the title of Music Director for Life in 1981.
