Maestro Arts at the Proms

The BBC Proms returns with six weeks of daily live concerts in front of audiences this year, between 30 July and 11 September, and features four Maestro Arts musicians.

Allan Clayton takes part in the First Night of the Proms on 30 July, singing in the world premiere of James MacMillan's When Soft Voices Die and Vaughan Williams' Serenade to Music, with Dalia Stasevska conducting the BBC Symphony Orchestra. MacMillan's new work is set to texts by Shelley and is conceived as a companion piece to the Vaughan Williams, using the same forces.

Adrian Brendel joins clarinettist Michael Collins and pianist Michael McHale on 2 August to play clarinet trios by Zemlinsky and Brahms, in two performances at Cadogan Hall.

Pavel Kolesnikov performs Rachmaninov's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini with Aurora Orchestra on 11 August, conducted by Nicholas Collon.

On 26 August, Ilan Volkov conducts the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra in the world premiere George Lewis's Minds in Flux and Beethoven's concert aria 'Ah! perfido' and Symphony no.2.

Booking for concerts between 30 July and 20 August opens on Saturday 26 June, and on Friday 13 August for the second half.
