BBC PROMS 2011
Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London
Presented by Rob Cowan
A Prom full of orchestral spectacle and panache. The centrepiece is Prokofiev's patriotic cantata based on music he wrote for Eisenstein's film about the epic struggles of the medieval Russian hero, Alexander Nevsky. Richard Strauss's hero, Don Juan, is less bloodthirsty but every bit as colourful, while Salome is one of Strauss's most seductive heroines. Violinist Midori joins the CBSO and Andris Nelsons for Walton's Concerto - a dramatic and lyrical work that makes huge technical demands on the soloist.
