WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Part of the BBC Proms.
This year's Free Prom is a Bank Holiday matinee bursting with dance rhythms and colour - the perfect chance to experience the Proms for the first time. A trio of Dvorak's colourful, folk-inspired Slavonic Dances opens the concert and Grieg's Piano Concerto, with its lively dance-themed finale and Norwegian folk echoes, continues the mood; the soloist is BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Zhang Zuo, making her Proms debut. The concert ends in the Ulster Orchestra's Irish musical heartland with Bax's tone-poem Roscatha and Bill Whelan's new Riverdance suite - adapted from his music for the ever-popular stage show. Finish time approx. 17:15
