Christian Thielemann (conductor)
In the first of two Proms in which Christian Thielemann displays his credentials as an interpreter of the Austro-German repertoire, he focuses on Bruckner's Third Symphony, the composer's symphonic monument to his idol Wagner - a monolithic memorial that feels at the same time intimate and personal.
Before that, one of the most sought-after of today's pianists, Daniil Trifonov, is the soloist in Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 21 - whose ebullient finale contrasts with the seraphic slow movement made famous by the 1967 film Elvira Madigan.
