The world famous Proms season continues at the Royal Albert Hall with a concert by Osmo Vanska and the BBC Symphony Orchestra. They will be performing Beethoven's "Egmont Overture", Mozart's "Clarinet Concerto in A major", Delius' "Eventyr (Once Upon a Time)" and Nielsen's "Symphony No. 5".
As well as working closely with the BBC, the BBC Symphony Orchestra plays regular concerts at the Barbican and is the principal orchestra of world-famous Proms Concerts, giving around a dozen performances each year, including the prestigious First and Last Nights.
