Director Rafael Payare present the Proms premiere of Clara Schumann’s Piano Concerto, performed here by BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Mariam Batsashvili.

Begun when the then Clara Wieck was just 13 years old, it’s a work whose mellow mood and lyrical melodies conceal no little technical intricacy and formal innovation.

Sunny good humour also runs through both Beethoven’s Symphony No. 1 – famously described as a musical ‘comedy of manners’ – and Shostakovich’s First Symphony, lively with satirical wit and mischief.
