The programme for tonight's BBC Prom, with everything you need to know about how to watch or listen to it on BBC TV and radio


Tonight’s Prom was initially scheduled as one of the season’s ‘Mystery Proms’, but it has now been announced that it will feature pianist Pavel Kolesnikov in a performance of Bach’s Goldberg Variations. His recent recording of the Goldbergs was awarded a three-star review by BBC Music Magazine.

Pavel Kolesnikov has already performed at this year’s Proms, in a concert with the Aurora Orchestra and conductor Nicholas Collon. You can view photos from that particular Prom here.
