Festival: BBC Proms

From sunrise to high noon: this matinee concert from the Tyneside-based Royal Northern Sinfonia under its Principal Conductor Dinis Sousa begins with the sun rising over Haydn’s joyous early symphony. It ends with Beethoven cutting loose in sheer, unbuckled glee, in the rollercoaster finale of his brightest symphony. In between, the skies just gets brighter and more beautiful, as oboist Nicholas Daniel (60 years young this year) takes the solo spot in Vaughan Williams’s playful, pastoral Oboe Concerto – another anniversary salute to this great British master. Then violinist Maria Maria Włoszczowska is the soloist in Kaija Saariaho’s ravishing Vers toi qui es si loin – a wordless love song, adapted from the acclaimed opera Lamour de loin by one of today’s true sonic magicians.

£8.50–£42 (plus booking fee)
