Presented by Martin Handley at the Royal Albert Hall, London
Wagner: Flying Dutchman – overture
Rolf Wallin: Violin Concerto (world premiere)

Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra
Edward Gardner, conductor
Followed by a selection of recordings from this week's Proms Artists.
A concert with a Nordic flavour from Edward Gardner and the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra climaxes in Sibelius’s Second Symphony, whose folk-like melodies are a musical celebration of Finnish life and identity.
Violinist Alina Ibragimova is the soloist in Norwegian composer Rolf Wallin’s concerto – the second of two new violin concertos premiered this season (see also Prom 47).
And the evening opens with Wagner’s propulsive overture to The Flying Dutchman, an opera set along the coast of Norway from the orchestra’s base in Bergen.
