PROMS 2011

Live from the Royal Albert Hall in London

Presented by Katie Derham

The Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra comes to the Proms with its new Chief Conductor, Sakari Oramo.

Sibelius claimed that his magical Sixth Symphony would offer the public 'pure cold water' rather than the 'cocktails' composed by his contemporaries. A contrasting symphony ends this concert: Nielsen's extrovert Fourth Symphony, which emerges from the dark days of the First World War.

Between these two symphonies, the critically-acclaimed young German-Japanese pianist, Alice Sara Ott, makes her Proms debut playing the ever popular Grieg Concerto.

Sibelius: Symphony No. 6 in D minor
Grieg: Piano Concerto in A minor
