About This Event

The two symphonies that frame this Prom each offer a defiant, optimistic challenge to the status quo. Mozart's pioneering 'Prague' Symphony rewrites the rule book for the genre, while in Schumann's Second Symphony the composer overcomes the demons of his own mental health to produce a work of invigorating, captivating extremes.

Conductor Bernard Haitink – a Proms regular for over half a century – returns with frequent collaborators, the Chamber Orchestra of Europe. They are joined by award-winning German violinist Isabelle Faust, the soloist in Mozart’s graceful Violin Concerto No. 3.

Broadcast 23 July at 7pm on BBC Four.
