Prom 48: Zubin Mehta Conducts the Australian World Orchestra

Royal Albert HallKensington Gore, London, Greater London, SW7 2AP, United Kingdom

Festival: BBC Proms

Australian musicians play in most of the world’s leading orchestras, from the Berlin Philharmonic to our own BBC orchestras. The Australian World Orchestra gathers many of them together, back home in Australia, to create a classical supergroup unlike anything on earth: the result, says conductor Zubin Mehta, ‘is one of the top 10 orchestras in the world’. But hearing is believing and tonight Mehta – a household name – conducts the AWO in its Proms debut, performing music that ranges from the multicoloured Expressionism of Anton Webern, to the rolling, sunlit slopes of Brahms’s expansive Second Symphony. Plus jewel-like miniatures by Debussy, exquisitely reworked by another great Australian musical export, Brett Dean.

£9.50–£52 (plus booking fee)
