Sol Gabetta (cello)
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Dalia Stasevska (conductor)

Dalia Stasevska makes her Proms debut as the BBC Symphony Orchestra’s newly appointed Principal Guest Conductor.

Cellist Sol Gabetta joins them to celebrate the centenary of one of the 20th century’s great unsung heroes, Mieczysław Weinberg, whose Cello Concerto – premiered by Rostropovich in 1957, a decade after it was written – deserves a place alongside those of his great friend and colleague Shostakovich.

The programme also includes Tchaikovsky’s much-loved ‘Pathétique’ Symphony, with its thrilling Scherzo, and Sibelius’s suite Karelia a stirring celebration of Finland’s proud history.
