The centrepiece of this Prom by the Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra and Han-Na Chang is Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5. Vivid with textural contrasts and sudden surging climaxes, it is matched for drama by Rachmaninov’s Second Piano Concerto – a Proms favourite, with a slow movement that burns with restrained passion.

About this event

Cellist and conductor Han-Na Chang makes her Proms conducting debut as Music Director of the Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra – one of this year’s global orchestras, also making its debut. Their concert culminates in Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5, haunted by its recurring ‘Fate’ theme.

Vivid with contrasts and surging climaxes, the symphony is matched for drama by Rachmaninov’s Second Piano Concerto, a Proms favourite whose slow movement burns with restrained passion. Behzad Ranjbaran’s Seemorgh is inspired by the mythical Persian bird of its title.
