Greek coloratura soprano Danae Kontora makes her Proms debut with a sequence of Mozart and Strauss arias, while Mozart’s ‘Haffner’ Symphony is filled with operatic ornamentation and dramatic effects.

The vitality of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 led to its being famously described by Wagner as ‘the apotheosis of the dance’.
