Next Episode of BBC Proms is
BBC Proms is the world's greatest classical music festival.
Temperatures are set to soar in the Royal Albert Hall with this fiesta of tango music from across the world. From the bars of Buenos Aires via Finland, where a passion for tango exploded at the beginning of the 20th century, this concert traces the development of the sexiest and sultriest music genre on the planet. Grammy Award-winning pianist Pablo Ziegler and a hand-picked group of world-class soloists join the Britten Sinfonia and conductor Clark Rundell for this one-off spectacular, presented by tango devotee Katie Derham.
The legendary Senegalese cultural icon Youssou N'Dour and his band Le Super Etoile de Dakar take over the Royal Albert Hall for this special Late Night Prom. The singer, composer, occasional actor, entrepreneur and political activist has been thrilling audiences for over 40 years. For his Proms debut, he brings his distinctive sound of Mbalax, a fusion of jazz, soul, Latin music and rock blended with sabar, the traditional drumming and dance music of Senegal. This largely acoustic performance will spotlight N'Dour's spine-tingling vocals and demonstrate why he is considered the first superstar of world music.
The BBC Proms 2018 season comes to a close with the BBC Symphony Orchestra and their much-loved former chief conductor Sir Andrew Davis steering proceedings live from the Royal Albert Hall. Long-standing nautical traditions of the evening are extended in Stanford's Songs of the Sea, featuring Canadian baritone Gerald Finley. The centenary of the end of the Great War is marked with a new work from Roxanna Panufnik. The evening includes music by Hindemith, Berlioz and Charles Hubert Parry. Coverage also includes visits to Proms in the Parks across the Nation, also celebrating this annual great night in classical music.
Katie Derham presents live coverage as the Last Night of the Proms continues from the Royal Albert Hall with the ever-popular Marche militaire francaise by Saint-Saens. Award-winning 18-year-old saxophonist Jess Gillam performs Scaramouche by Milhaud, and baritone Gerry Finley performs the song Soliloquy from Rodgers and Hammerstein's Carousel. To mark 100 years since 1918 there is a nationwide sing-around of traditional First World War songs, with contributions from the Proms in the Park events in Colwyn Bay, Glasgow and Belfast. The 2018 Proms are brought to a familiar and much-loved rousing close with Rule Britannia, Land of Hope and Glory, and Jerusalem. The BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus and BBC Singers are conducted by Sir Andrew Davis.
