    The incomparable Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra makes a return following its second appearance at the Proms back in 2011.

    As part of our celebration this year of South American music and musicians, we hear the performance of Venezuelan composer Paul Desenne’s Hipnosis mariposa and Heitor Villa-Lobos’s orchestral tribute to J. S. Bach.

    This most thrusting of orchestras ends with Ravel’s dizzying parody of a fin de siècle waltz, La valse. A Proms hot ticket if ever there was one.
