About this event

Sir Antonio Pappano and the Orchestra of the Academy of Santa Cecilia, Rome, take a musical journey that begins with the ceremonial fizz and pomp of Mozart’s ‘Haffner’ Symphony and ends in the burnished melancholy and high drama of Rachmaninov’s Symphony No 2.

Jan Lisiecki makes his Proms debut in Schumann’s Piano Concerto, a work that eschews empty technical display and calls instead for a detailed and intimate dialogue between pianist and orchestra: chamber music on a grand scale.

PODCAST AVAILABLE

Listen to Young Canadian pianist Jan Lisiecki on making his BBC Proms debut, working with conductor Sir Antonio Pappano and icecream from a certain luxury department store.
