Festival: BBC Proms

Star American soprano Renée Fleming returns to join Sakari Oramo and the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra for the shimmering ‘transformation’ music that closes Richard Strauss’s opera Daphne, and Samuel Barber’s Knoxville: Summer of 1915, a nostalgic portrait of the America of a simpler age. The RSPO also brings music by its Swedish compatriot Andrea Tarrodi – Liguria, a vivid musical ‘walking tour’ through Italian  fishing villages as well as Nielsen’s Second Symphony, ‘The Four Temperaments’, whose four movements offer different character portraits, from a choleric opening Allegro to a melancholic slow movement. 

Tickets £14 - £60.
