From the Royal Albert Hall, London. Presented by Sara Mohr-Pietsch.
As part of a two-day Proms residency, Daniel Barenboim's West-Eastern Divan Orchestra performs a concert in which it revisits its roots in Weimar and the poetry of Goethe. Franz Liszt led music in Weimar for a decade in the mid-19th century, and Barenboim conducts one of his ground-breaking symphonic poems alongside a masterpiece by a composer he controversially championed - Wagner.
