Watch the Last Night of the Proms live on BBC Two; this year featuring soloists Nicola Benedetti (violin) and Joseph Calleja (tenor).
The programme includes the traditional Last Night favourites – including Puccini’s 'Nessun Dorma' and Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance March No. 1 – as well as featuring a performance of Bruch’s Violin Concerto by Benedetti, and a world premiere – Sparks by Mark Simpson – commissioned by the BBC.
There will also be music by Suk, Delius, Verdi, Massenet, Shostakovich and Dvořák among others. Jiří Bělohlávek will conduct the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus in this celebration of classical music to bring another brilliant Proms season to a close.
