This afternoon's broadcast contrasts Gérard Grisey's classic Dérives, a striking exploration of the interiors of sounds, with Mahler's tender Rückert-Lieder.
Mozart's unfinished Mass in C minor is a mix of the chamber and the operatic, the dancing and the devotional - a work ripe for the resonance of the Royal Albert Hall.
[First broadcast on Saturday 20th August]
Followed by a selection of music from this week's Proms artists.
