    Thomas Søndergård conducts his BBC National Orchestra of Wales in a Prom exploring the idea of the orchestral ‘passacaglia’ and some of the most delicious and subtle orchestral sonorities ever conjured.

    Brahms’s fourth and final symphony feels like the composer’s supreme orchestral achievement; its finale, a radiant passacaglia, is the summation of the composer’s quest to wed discipline and emotion.

    After Walton’s boisterous Partita comes the world premiere of the latest Proms cello concerto, a piece written by Huw Watkins and played by his brother.
