About this event

Dedicated to the late Jonathan Harvey, Param Vir’s Cave of Luminous Mind is inspired by the mindfulness of Tibetan Buddhism and the story of Buddhist master Milarepa’s penitential progress on the Diamond Path.

Chief Conductor and Elgar Medalwinner Sakari Oramo directs the BBC Symphony Orchestra in the world premiere of Vir’s work, Elgar’s ‘Enigma’ Variations and Granville Bantock’s 1940 Celtic Symphony for strings and six harps. Georgian violinist Lisa Batiashvili plays Sibelius’s exhilarating Violin Concerto, a work she recorded in 2008 to rave reviews.

Watch and listen to new music at the Proms.
