BBC Proms 2009:

The BBC Symphony Orchestra concludes the Proms survey of Stravinsky's ballets with the dazzling Agon. Stephen Hough completes his Proms marathon of Tchaikovsky's piano concertos with the curiously neglected Concert Fantasia, and cellist Steven Isserlis returns to the Rococo Variations. The concert ends with more Tchaikovsky - his dramatic tale of forbidden love and eternal punishment. Introduced by Penny Gore.
