BBC WS at The Proms
The summer festival of classical music at the Proms from July to September has long been covered by the BBC World Service. Even in these news-drive days they still fit some concerts into the schedules. We has tickets to attend a prom the other week and it was a fantastic experience.
The BBC Proms home page is at http://www.bbc.co.uk/proms and there is a fabulous archive at http://www.bbc.co.uk/proms/archive where you can even browse, season by season, way back to 1895.
For instance, on Tuesday 12 Aug 1975 Prom 19 from the Royal Albert Hall was:
Haydn - Symphony No. 96 in D major 'Miracle'.
Schumann - Concerto for Piano in A minor, Op 54.
Beethoven - Symphony No. 5 in C minor.
