    About This Event

    Sakari Oramo conducts the annual Proms performance of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony – Finnish soprano Anu Komsi leads an international cast of soloists.

    It is paired with two world premieres: a new choral work by Jonathan Dove and a much-anticipated Piano Concerto by Swiss composer Dieter Ammann, performed by his compatriot Andreas Haefliger.

    Approx. end time: 22:05
