BBC Last Night of the Proms 2012

BBC Last Night of the Proms 2012

Join us for the year’s biggest musical party with two very special guests. Since taking the UK by storm as 2004’s BBC Young Musician of the Year, Scottish-born Nicola Benedetti has enhanced her reputation as one of Britain’s most innovative and creative young violinists. We also welcome Joseph Calleja, the Maltese tenor who sings with the grace and elegance of the voices of a bygone era. A brace of Czechs acknowledges the sterling work of the BBC Symphony Orchesta’s outgoing chief Jiří Bělohlávek, while contributions from 2012’s anniversary composers include Delius’s valedictory settings of Walt Whitman.
