British conductor Alpesh Chauhan makes his much-anticipated Proms debut with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra – where he is Associate Conductor. He brings a powerful programme to the Royal Albert Hall, including Shostakovich’s Fifth Symphony, the ‘Adagio’ from Bruckner’s String Quartet in F (arranged for full string orchestra), and the World Premiere of Nicole Lizée’s Percussion Concerto featuring celebrated Scottish percussionist, Colin Currie.
