About this event
We kick off with the London premiere of a new Olympic Fanfare by Ayrshire-born James MacMillan. Nicola Benedetti is in the spotlight for Bruch’s Scottish Fantasy, Scottish-American composer Thea Musgrave gives the tuba its moment with her postcard from Loch Ness, while both tonight’s ensembles come together for one of Respighi’s glamorous Roman spectaculars.
Please note this event contains an update to the concert programme from that in the 2012 BBC Proms Guide
