The West-Eastern Divan Orchestra and Daniel Barenboim return to the BBC Proms in this live performance introduced by Andrew McGregor. They bring some Spanish-infused repertoire starting with music by Mozart, the overture to his opera The Marriage of Figaro, set in Seville. It's followed by the UK premiere of two compositions by Middle-Eastern composers: Israeli Ayal Adler and Syrian-born Kareem Roustom. And then it's time again for some more Iberian flavours with Ravel's music: his Rapsodie espagnole, then Alborada del gracioso, followed by an orchestral version of his Pavane pour une infante défunte, finishing with the mesmerising rhythms of his Bolero.

Prom 46 repeat Monday 1st September 1400-1630.
