Prom 46: WDR Symphony Orchestra Cologne

Royal Albert HallKensington Gore, London, Greater London, SW7 2AP, United Kingdom
Dates/times in London time zone
Sunday 21 August 202219:30
Festival: BBC Proms

The composers of the Romantic generation saw the world differently, and they heard it differently, too. A stormy voyage off the Scottish coast set music playing in Mendelssohn’s head: music that grew into the overture The Hebrides. Brahms launches his Third Symphony in heroic style – but brings it to a close in the most radiant of sunset glows. Dvořák, meanwhile, fused Classical forms with Czech folklore and his own deeply poetic spirit to create a violin concerto that dances as joyfully as it sings. Grammy Award-winner Augustin Hadelich is its champion tonight, as the Proms welcomes the Cologne-based WDR Symphony Orchestra and its energetic Chief Conductor Cristian Măcelaru.

£14–£62 (plus booking fee)
