with Guest Conductor Nicolas Ellis and Guest Soloist Maxim Bernard
We continue the tradition of promenade concerts with At the Proms! These concerts are a chance to do away with decorum and simply enjoy music– so come as you are! Joining us is extraordinary young pianist Maxim Bernard, and Guest Conductor Nicolas Ellis. With the likes of Airat Ichmouratov, Frédéric Chopin, Sir William Walton, and Sergei Rachmaninoff (whose piece features saxophone—so rare at the orchestra!), we aim to make the great classics accessible to all.
*Airat Ichmouratov, Ouverture Jeunesse
Frédéric Chopin, Piano Concerto no. 2
Sir William Walton, Crown Imperial – Coronation March
Sergei Rachmaninoff, Symphonic Dances
