      The dreamy pastoralism of Vaughan Williams’s The Lark Ascending contrasts with the jaunty vigour of the composer’s overture The Wasps in this all-English Prom. Job continues this season’s thread of great 20th-century ballet scores, while William Alwyn’s First Symphony adds to the evening’s nostalgia with the endless melody of its slow movement. Janine Jansen joins Sakari Oramo and the BBC Symphony Orchestra as soloist.

    • 22:15
      Royal Albert Hall

      Surrender to the pulsing rhythms and repetitions of Minimalism’s founding father, Steve Reich, performed by the BBC Singers and contemporary specialists the Endymion Ensemble. Relive the early experimentation of It’s Gonna Rain with its hypnotic layers of spoken sound, while The Desert Music offers a hypnotising meditation on fragments of William Carlos Williams’s poetry.
