From the Royal Albert Hall, London.

Sarah Walker presents the conclusion of a Prom for multiple pianos, with the Britten Sinfonia and piano duos featuring in Saint-Saens' playful zoological suite, contrasted with Lutoslawski's virtuosic reworking of a famous Paganini Caprice.

Plus a new work for two pianos by Anna Meredith, whose nation-hopping piece, 'froms', introduced her to Proms audiences at 2008's Last Night.
