First Night of the Proms

John Adams’s Harmonium is an intricate tapestry of sound, with bright vocal threads and driving brass and percussion rhythms. Marking the composer’s 70th birthday this year, it features the BBC Proms Youth Choir. Award-winning pianist Igor Levit is the soloist in Beethoven’s groundbreaking Third Piano Concerto, and this year’s First Night opens with the world premiere of St John’s Dance by rising British composer Tom Coult. 

Tickets £9.50 - £50.
