    About This Event

    Dance – whether in the exotic pulse of Bartók’s Dance Suite, the insistent Russian folk rhythms of Stravinsky’s The Firebird or the languorous ballet of Debussy’s faun – runs right through tonight’s Prom.

    Peter Eötvös conducts his new violin concerto Alhambra – performed here by the work’s original soloist, award-winning German violinist Isabelle Faust.

    Approx. end time: 22:00
