After a slightly quieter affair last year, with Dalia Stasevska conducting the BBC Symphony Orchestra in an empty hall, the Last Night of the Proms returned with a bang.


Sakari Oramo returned to the Last Night for the fifth time, conducting his orchestra in a programme that encompassed world premieres; traditional national songs from Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland; and the usual Last Night pomp and circumstance.
