Sibelius: Symphony No 7 in C major

Sibelius's genre-bending Seventh unfolds in a continuous musical gesture of expansive, if characteristically enigmatic, nobility. Centenary composer Bernd Alois Zimmermann's Symphony in One Movement is another assault on tradition that kicks against Wagner's rousing overture to The Mastersingers of Nuremberg. Four popular Schubert songs and his formidable 'Wanderer' Fantasy get a colourful orchestral upscaling.

Followed by recordings from this week's Proms Artists.
