Friday Night at the Proms: Barenboim and the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra

Daniel Barenboim and his West-Eastern Divan Orchestra play Beethoven's Triple Concerto, Tchaikovsky's 4th Symphony and Schoenberg's 1st Chamber Symphony at the Royal Albert Hall.

Something incredibly special happens every time Daniel Barenboim and his West-Eastern Divan Orchestra come to the Proms, and this should be no exception as Friday Night at the Proms presents a rare chance to see the maestro playing the piano alongside violinist Guy Braunstein and cellist Kian Soltani in Beethoven's fabulous Triple Concerto.

Tchaikovsky's 4th Symphony and Schoenberg's 1st Chamber Symphony are also performed by what is one of the most significant musical alliances of our age. World-class music making is a given, augmented by Barenboim's own performance, meaning you never quite know what will happen next.

Presented by Suzy Klein and Razia Iqbal.
