From the Royal Albert Hall, London.
Rob Cowan presents the first of two Proms with the BBC Philharmonic under their chief conductor Gianandrea Noseda. Joining them is brilliant young Scottish bassoonist Karen Geoghegan, who makes her Proms debut with Mozart's concerto, written when the composer was just 18. Continuing the Proms survey of the complete Stravinsky ballets is his 'featherweight and sugared' - as he called it - score commissioned for a 1944 Broadway revue.
