The Bernstein centenary celebrations continue in a programme that pairs his 'Jeremiah' Symphony with music by two composers he admired and championed.
Appearing at the Proms for the first time in five years, Rome's Santa Cecilia Orchestra (of which Bernstein was Honorary President for almost a decade) and its Music Director Sir Antonio Pappano perform Bernstein's youthful First Symphony, charged with political anxiety and dread, alongside another symphonic debut, Mahler's dramatic First.
The evening opens with Haydn's arresting musical vision of primordial chaos.
