From the Royal Albert Hall, London. Presented by Andrew McGregor.

The Prom concludes with renowned Shostakovich interpreter Semyon Bychkov conducting the BBC Symphony Orchestra in the powerful and strikingly cinematic Symphony No 11, written in 1957. On the surface the work commemorates the failed anti-Tsarist uprising of 1905, but deep down it rages at the Soviet authorities.
