Sir Roger Norrington, conductor
New sounds always emerge from Sir Roger Norrington's historically informed adventures with his old friends from Stuttgart. In this BBC Prom, first broadcast on Thursday 28 July, he turns his attention to the joyous overture from Berlioz's Shakespearean comedy Beatrice and Benedict and two works central to the Austro-German tradition: Beethoven's Fourth Piano Concerto and Brahms's First Symphony
Followed by a selection of recordings from this week's Proms Artists.
