About This Event

Simone Young makes her Proms debut with the world premiere of Bayan Northcott’s Concerto for Orchestra and Mozart’s Eastern-influenced violin concerto.

Then, a rare chance to hear Zemlinsky’s setting of Hindu poetry by Rabindranath Tagore, an alluring and mysterious slice of late-Romantic lusciousness in which soprano and baritone drape verses over a kaleidoscopic orchestra.
