Daniel Barenboim and his West–Eastern Divan Orchestra return to the Proms with a programme of emotion and sensation.
Legendary Argentine pianist Martha Argerich is the soloist in Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1 – an outpouring of Romantic intensity sustained from the arresting opening chords right through to the thrilling finale.
Polish folk dances pulse through Lutosławski’s vibrant Concerto for Orchestra, with its echoes of Stravinsky and Bartok. Its bracing rhythmic energy and reticent beauty offer the perfect foil to the melodic richness of Tchaikovsky’s concerto.
Followed by performances by the Aurora Orchestra of works by winners of the Proms Inspire Competition.
