      Three masterworks from three different centuries: Beethoven’s First Symphony is all 18th- century poise and wit, Bruch’s First Violin Concerto swoons with 19th-century romance, and Walton’s Henry V celebrates the golden age of 20th-century film music. Sir Neville Marriner is joined by Joshua Bell, the Music Director of the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, who appears here both as conductor (Beethoven) and soloist (Bruch).

      The NYOGB presents a fiery and virtuosic programme of 20th-century orchestral masterpieces, conducted by Proms favourite Edward Gardner. BBC New Generation Artist Louis Schwizgebel takes the lead in Prokofiev’s youthful First Piano Concerto, which brims with the same audacious energy that pulses through Stravinsky’s vividly colourful ballet Petrushka. Lutosławski’s Concerto for Orchestra closes the evening with still more primary-coloured, folkloric brilliance and drama.
