Proms on Four: Orchestras of the World - Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra

From the Royal Albert Hall, the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra perform Tchaikovsky's fantasy overture Romeo and Juliet, Wagner's Wesendonck Leider and Prokofiev's 5th Symphony.

From the Royal Albert Hall, the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, under their charismatic French-Canadian conductor Yannick Nezet-Seguin, bring a programme of ill-fated love to the BBC Proms. Tchaikovsky's fantasy overture Romeo and Juliet is followed by Wagner's Wesendonck Leider, a song cycle inspired by the composer's infatuation with the wife of one of his wealthy patrons. Soprano Anna Caterina Antonacci is the soloist. The concert ends with a performance of one of the great orchestral works of the 20th century, Prokofiev's 5th Symphony. Presented by Katie Derham.
