Catch the First Night of the Proms again
Another chance to hear the explosive opening of the 2012 Proms, presented by Penny Gore
Re-live the first night of this year's BBC Proms on Radio 3 this week. The concert opened with a piece commissioned by BBC Music Magazine, to celebrate our 20th birthday: Mark-Anthony Turnage's Canon Fever. The BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus performed a programme of works which also included Delius's Sea Drift and Elgar's Coronation Ode. Four conductors shared the evening's music: Edward Gardner, Sir Roger Norrington, Sir Mark Elder and Martyn Brabbins. The evening's soloists were soprano Susan Gritton, mezzo-soprano Sarah Connolly, tenor Robert Murray, bass-baritone Gerald Finley and bass-baritone Bryn Terfel.
