Festival: BBC Proms

From its jingling opening sleigh bells to its charming closing song for soprano and orchestra, Mahler’s Fourth Symphony is one of the composer’s sunniest and most appealing works, lively with birdsong and youthful energy. It’s a mood it shares with Haydn’s ebullient and richly orchestrated Symphony No. 82, nicknamed ‘The Bear’ for the lurching melody of its  final movement, with its suggestion of dancing bears at a country fair. For their second concert, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and Daniele Gatti are joined by Israeli soprano Chen Reiss, making her Proms debut. 

Tickets £14 - £60.
