From the Royal Albert Hall, London.

Andrew McGregor presents the conclusion of the Prom, with Oliver Knussen conducting the BBC Symphony Orchestra in his own Horn Concerto, followed by Balakirev's 'oriental fantasy' inspired by the Caucasus. Casella's arrangement of it propelled an already virtuosic keyboard piece into even more exotic extremes, using a large orchestra.
