      Pianist Louis Schwizgebel and the dynamic Royal String Quartet are the key players in a concert that culminates in Richard Strauss's richly nostalgic Metamorphosen, heard in an intimate arrangement for string septet. Alongside it are Mahler's contemplative Piano Quartet movement and Mozart's elegantly poised Piano Sonata in D major, K311.

      This year’s Free Prom is a Bank Holiday matinee from the Ulster Orchestra, bursting with dance rhythms and colour. A selection of Dvořák’s rustic Slavonic Dances opens the concert, and Grieg’s piano concerto with its jaunty dance-themed finale continues the mood. The evening ends in the orchestra’s musical heartland with Bax’s tone-poem Roscatha and Bill Whelan’s new Riverdance suite – adapted from his music for the ever-popular stage show.

        The Bank Holiday weekend celebrations continue with Proms favourites the Budapest Festival Orchestra and a programme of orchestral showpieces from the Habsburg Empire. Viennese-style Strauss dances are matched by Brahms’s colourful Hungarian Dances and Kodály’s sweeping Dances of Galánta, balanced by the crisp Classical textures of a Mozart March. At the centre is Schubert’s ‘Unfinished’ Symphony.
