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

A concert with a Nordic flavour from Paavo Järvi and the Estonian Festival Orchestra (making its Proms debut) pairs music by Grieg and Sibelius with Estonia's own national composer, Arvo Pärt.

Celebrated Georgian pianist Khatia Buniatishvili - a former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist - performs one of the great Romantic piano concertos.

Beloved for its generous melodies and dramatic gestures, Grieg's concerto is matched for sonic drama by Sibelius's stirring Fifth Symphony.

Arvo Pärt's eclectic Third Symphony, with its echoes of Renaissance polyphony and Orthodox chant, opens the concert.
