WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
A concert from the BBC Proms.
The 2013 Proms begins with a surge of natural energy in sea-inspired works by Britten and Vaughan Williams (the latter combining the 300-strong Proms Youth Choir and the BBC Symphony Chorus). A world premiere from Julian Anderson and two sets of Paganini variations by Rachmaninov and featured composer Lutoslawski add pianistic stardust. Finish time approx: 22:20
