About this event

Daniel Harding returns to the Proms after 10 years, directing the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, with which he has a long association, in a programme exploring the subtly different properties of the keys of C major and C minor.

Paul Lewis is the soloist in Mozart’s Piano Concerto, K503, its urbane elegance and delicate woodwind writing a contrast to the austerity of the 1785 Masonic Funeral Music.

Two great symphonies acutely expressive of light and shade, Schumann’s Second and Sibelius’s Seventh, complete an imaginative and stimulating sequence of works.
