WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Part of the BBC Proms.

Evocations of Nordic forests, Persian gardens and snow-capped mountains feature in Thomas Sondergard's first Prom as Principal Conductor of tonight's orchestra. Wilhelm Stenhammar's 1896 symphonic overture Excelsior! leads into the opulent sound-world of Karol Syzmanowski's Symphony No. 3, ?The Song of the Night'. A journey from dusk to dawn and on into the night, Richard Strauss's Alpine Symphony is a much a statement of the composer's personal philosophy as a description of the natural world at its most dramatic. Finish time: approx. 21:05
