WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Part of the BBC Proms.

Thomas S?nderg?rd and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales return to give the UK premiere of Colin Matthews's mercurial Turning Point and Daniel Hope is the soloist in the first of two 20th-century Russian masterpieces. The flinty beauty of Prokofiev's Second Violin Concerto stands in sharp contrast to the granite heft of Shostakovich's Symphony No. 11, ?The Year 1905', written four years after the death of Joseph Stalin and studded through with revolutionary songs. Finish time: approx. 21:20
