About this event

One of the world's great orchestras comes to the Proms with a programme of familiar classics that takes in Rachmaninov's bracing swansong, written for Philadelphia.

A regular visitor in recent years, Janine Jansen joins the orchestra for the ever-popular Tchaikovsky concerto she recorded recently in fresh and unashamedly romantic style.

These works are bookended by Sibelius's patriotic rallying cry and Ravel's apotheosis of the waltz, a piece whose unstoppable whirling may have been intended as a metaphor for the fate of European civilisation.
