The greatest classical music festival on earth returns to London’s Royal Albert Hall. It’s time for the Proms!

This year’s BBC Proms sees the piano given a starring role. Prokofiev’s five piano concertos will be performed together in the same concert for the first time ever, by Alexei Volodin, Sergei Babayan and Daniil Trifonov. Leading pianist Leif Ove Andsnes and the Mehler Chamber Orchestra will focus on Beethoven’s complete piano concertos; while Mozart’s late piano works will be showcased by Maria João Pires, Elisabeth Leonskaja, and Katia and Marielle Labèque.

Other highlights include a return to the Royal Albert Hall for animated British conductor Sir Simon Rattle, as he leads the BBC Proms Youth Choir and the Vienna Philharmonic through Elgar’s The Dream of Gerontius.

Bach’s solo instrumentals will be performed throughout the season by various artists.
