The second concert from Yannick Nézet-Séguin and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra pays tribute to the 150th anniversary of the birth of Proms founder-conductor Henry Wood.

A passionate champion of new music, Wood gave the UK premieres of many major works featured this season, including both Sibelius’s turbulent Symphony No. 1 and Prokofiev’s Second Violin Concerto – played here by Georgian soloist Lisa Batiashvili – whose initial simplicity and directness give way to spiky virtuosity in the finale.

The concert closes in Vienna, with the waltz-filled and lushly orchestrated suite from Richard Strauss’s popular opera Der Rosenkavalier.
