Benjamin Grosvenor performs a solo recital on the Royal Albert Hall stage during the opening weekend of the Proms, with a colourful programme of orchestral and opera transcriptions for piano including Debussy’s Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune and Ravel’s La Valse.
Sunday 6 August, matinee
Cellist Laura van der Heijden performs a chamber Prom at Dewsbury Town Hall with her duo partner Jâms Coleman in a selection of works by Rachmaninoff and Pejačević, and the Proms premiere of a new work by Lara Weaver.
Sunday 6 August, evening
Benjamin Grosvenor returns to the Royal Albert Hall for Rachmaninoff’s much-loved Piano Concerto no.2 with the Sinfonia of London, conducted by John Wilson. This Prom will also be televised and available for streaming at a later date, to be announced.
