Festival: BBC Proms

Following her recent UK debut, American conductor Karina Canellakis now makes her rst visit to the Proms, joining the BBC Symphony Orchestra and fellow American Jeremy Denk for Bartók’s ferociously brilliant Second Piano Concerto. Dvořák’s Symphony No. 8, by contrast, is a work of genial lyricism. ‘Melodies simply pour out of me,’ wrote the composer, and the result is a pastoral symphony in all but name. The concert opens with the European premiere of Missy Mazzoli’s mesmeric Sinfonia – music ‘in the shape of the solar system’ that weaves and coils itself in a sequence of pulsing loops.

Tickets £7.50 - £40.
