Followed by a selection of recordings from this week's Proms Artists.

Andrew Manze and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra open with Haydn's lively, assertive final symphony - composed and first performed in London during the composer's second triumphant residency.

First performed in March 1914, Vaughan Williams's A London Symphony evokes the chimes of Westminster, a chilly November in Bloomsbury and the bright lights of the Strand in a city that would soon be scarred by war.
