The London Symphony Orchestra returns to the Proms, joined by noted Mahlerian Bernard Haitink, for the composer's Fourth Symphony. Opening with one of Mahler's most charming melodies, lit by sleigh-bells, it closes with a song offering a child's-eye view of heaven, delivered here by soprano Camilla Tilling.

Famously described as a 'pearl of great price', Schubert's Fifth Symphony presents Classical perfection on a miniature scale. This compact symphony glows with melody and is as light on its feet as anything the composer ever wrote.
