BBC Proms - Prom 5: Richard Strauss, Dvorák and Beethoven
Violinist Julia Fischer returns to the Proms with a performance of Dvořák Violin Concerto
BBC Four offers a chance to watch Prom 5 again, featuring a programme that promises 'a vivid journey across central Europe.'
Proms favourite Julia Fischer joins the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich for a performance of Dvořák’s earthy, folk-infused Violin Concerto, the folk theme of the programme continuing with Strauss’ tone poem Till Eulenspiegels lustige streiche.
Stepping down after a period of almost 20 years, David Zinman’s final concert as the Tonhalle Orchestra’s Chief Conductor closes with Beethoven’s ever-popular ‘Pastoral’ Symphony - a joyful depiction of the Austrian countryside.
