About this event

The BBC Philharmonic and its Principal Guest Conductor return to the Royal Albert Hall for the first Proms performance of Erich Korngold’s Symphony. Dedicated to the memory of Franklin D. Roosevelt, the symphony refers back to Korngold’s score for the 1939 Errol Flynn and Bette Davis romance The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex.

Rubbra’s Ode to the Queen and Walton’s Orb and Sceptre celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s coronation, while Vilde Frang joins Storgårds and the orchestra for Bruch’s ever-popular Violin Concerto.
