Juanjo Mena conducts the world premiere of David Matthews' 'A Vision of the Sea', inspired by Shelley's poetry, the pull of the tide on the Kent coast and an evocation of sunrise. Nobuyuki Tsujii, who played to packed houses on his recent tour of Japan with the BBC Philharmonic, makes his proms debut in Rachmaninov's Second Piano Concerto before the orchestra performs Nielsen's irrepressible 'Inextinguishable' Fourth Symphony, music brimming with optimism and the sheer joy of living.
