Prom 76: Last Night of the Proms

Sakari Oramo directs his first Last Night of the Proms, joined by powerhouse Dutch violinist Janine Jansen. British patriotism and Strauss’s anniversary celebrations combine for the first Proms performance of the composer’s extraordinary cantata Taillefer. Ansell’s romp of a nautical overture, Plymouth Hoe, and Ravel’s gypsy-dance Tzigane add colourful contributions to this musical celebration that culminates, as always, with a mass singalong.
