July 19th – September 14th, 2019

Founded in 1895 by Sir Henry Wood, the BBC Proms is one of the largest classical music festivals in the world. The festival takes place every summer at the iconic Royal Albert Hall in London.

The eclectic season features a programme of over 90 events, ever widening the range of symphonic and operatic music presented. In addition to the huge variety of concerts, the Proms are complemented by talks, showcases, learning events and chamber music concerts held in other local venues.

Each year, the BBC Proms welcomes performing groups from across the UK and plays host to multiple global orchestras and renowned international artists. Indeed, each year a number of featured artists will take to the Proms stage for the very first time. Moreover, the BBC Proms season provides the stage upon which many new pieces receive their global debut.

A special feature of each concert at the Royal Albert Hall is the opportunity to experience ‘Promming’. Each night, audiences are invited to stand in the arena or gallery of the Hall and enjoy the concert for just £6. This accessible price, combined with the highest quality music-making, is what makes the series a truly unique experience for any first-time Prommer.

Every Prom throughout the season is broadcast live on BBC Radio 3, as well as on a number of other BBC Radio channels and regular TV transmissions. 

The summer culminates in a glorious celebration of the season in the form of the Last Night of the Proms. As well as the Last Night at the Royal Albert Hall, audiences can join the festivities across the country with Proms in the Park concerts taking place in London’s Hyde Park, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Obwohl es in Barenboims Spiel in Mozarts Klavierkonzert Nr. 26 einige bedenklichen Augenblicke gab, war seine Interpretation von Bruckners unterschätzter Symphonie Nr. 6 genial
