Tom Service presents the Proms debut of young French pianist David Fray. He performs Mozart's Piano Concerto No 5, with Jaap van Zweden leading the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic.


Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Tom Service

The young French pianist, David Fray, makes his Proms debut playing a grandly imposing Mozart concerto, and Jaap Van Zweden conducts Bruckner's Eighth Symphony - a momentous musical journey from darkness to life.

Tonight's conductor, Jaap van Zweden, was the youngest ever concertmaster of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and in that role played almost all the Bruckner symphonies under some of the greatest Bruckner interpreters. Now the conductor of the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, he has been recording his own critically-acclaimed cycle of the Bruckner symphonies.
