Last Night of the Proms to end 8-weeks of classical music
Date Posted: 31/07/12
The Last Night of the Proms will bring an end to eight weeks of daily classical orchestral music at the Royal Albert Hall, with a finale full of the some of the best pieces ever written.
Fans of the likes of Suk, Delius, Verdi and Massenet should book London hotels for Saturday, September 8th to attend the concert, which runs from 19:30 to 22:40 BST.
It will be opened with a BBC commission and world premiere of Mark Simpson's Sparks, before heading in to Suk's Towards a New Life and Delius' Songs of Farewell, among many others.
After the interval the highly appropriate Olympic Fanfare and Theme, written by John Williams, will be performed as well as Dvorak's Overture Carnival and Lara's Granada.
The Last Night of the Proms will then close with a traditional run of Henry Wood's Fantasia on British Sea-Songs, Elgar's Pomp and Circumstance March No.1 in D major (Land of Hope and Glory), Parry's Jerusalem and then the National Anthem.
