2.00pm BBC Proms 2008
Another chance to hear Thursday's Prom, with the BBC Philharmonic and its Conductor Laureate in a programme that includes the first public performance of Arnold Bax's In memoriam Patrick Pearse. Written in memory of one of the leaders of the Irish Easter Rising of 1916, it was only recently found to have been orchestrated. The orchestra is then joined by Yevgeny Sudbin who makes his BBC Proms debut in Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No 1, and the concert concludes with Vaughan Williams's challenging Symphony No 4.
