Prom 4 repeat: The Planets

Another chance to hear Prom 4: the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and Kirill Karabits play Holst's The Planets, John Adams and, with Nemanja Radulović, Barber's Violin Concerto.

Afternoon Concert with Georgia Mann

Another chance to hear the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and Kirill Karabits play Holst's The Planets and before that music by John Adams and Barber's Violin Concerto.

Presented by Martin Handley at the Royal Albert Hall, London.

John Adams: Short Ride in a Fast Machine
Samuel Barber: Violin Concerto
Gustav Holst: The Planets

Nemanja Radulović, violin
Trinity Boys Choir
Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra
Kirill Karabits, conductor

A concert of 20th-century classics from Kirill Karabits and the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra continues the 50th anniversary celebrations of the first manned mission to land on the Moon.

Space travel has never been more richly imagined than in Holst’s suite The Planets, but in order to
get there you’ll need to take a Short Ride in a Fast Machine, courtesy of John Adams’s exhilarating, propulsive Minimalist masterpiece.

The lyrical beauty of Samuel Barber’s Violin Concerto, with its exquisite slow movement, offers a contrasting moment of contemplation. Dynamic Franco-Serbian violinist Nemanja Radulović makes his Proms debut as soloist.

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