WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Part of the BBC Proms.

Tonight's all-Russian programme opens with the buzzing energy of Stravinsky's Scherzo fantastique and ends in a burst of cannon-fire, bells and brass as Tchaikovsky's '1812' Overture celebrates the defeat of Napoleon. This musical spectacle is more than matched by Rachmaninov's choral symphony The Bells, chiming the journey from birth to death. After making her Proms debut last year with Szymanowski's Violin Concerto, young Latvian violinist Baiba Skride returns to perform Stravinsky's neo-Classical Violin Concerto - lively with dance and invention. Finish time approx. 21:40
