      A concert of big melodies and even bigger sounds culminates in Saint-Saëns’s mighty ‘Organ’ Symphony. The French theme continues with Franck’s Symphonic Variations and, at just 22 years old, British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor returns for his fourth Proms appearance, performing both in the Franck and in Chopin’s virtuosic Piano Concerto No. 1.

      Singer and broadcaster Clare Teal transports us back to the 1930s, as two of the greatest swing bands of the day – one led by Count Basie, the other by Duke Ellington – faced off in a memorable Battle of the Bands. In this Late Night Prom, present-day leaders James Pearson and Grant Windsor fight it out in their own, roof-raising battle.
