About this event

Daniel Barenboim returns to the Proms, this time as both conductor and soloist, taking the piano part in Beethoven’s Triple Concerto. Schoenberg’s Chamber Symphony startled audiences with its ruthless concision – a reaction against the excesses of the late-Romantics. But excess gets the last word, in Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony, the musical expression of some of its composer’s most-troubled and heartfelt emotions.
