For such a huge venue - it holds almost six thousand people - the Royal Albert Hall can be amazingly intimate when the focus is on a single performer. What better way for the Proms to celebrate the 200th birthday this year of Frédéric Chopin than another chance to hear a late-night performance of his Nocturnes for solo piano, played in July by acclaimed Portuguese pianist Maria João Pires.
