About This Event

The Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra celebrates its 100th anniversary with its first visit to the Proms in five years, under the baton of Chief Conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin. Subtitled the ‘Romantic’ by the composer, Bruckner’s Fourth Symphony draws deeply on the German Romantic tradition of Weber and Wagner for its colourful musical drama. Yefim Bronfman is the soloist in Liszt’s Second Piano Concerto, a work originally conceived as a ‘concerto symphonique’, which offers a fascinating reimagining of the traditional relationship between soloist and orchestra.
