Review Text

The Proms - the Henry Wood Promenade Concerts - are into their 106th season. A thoroughly British institution, they offer a unique experience for public and performers alike, filling the Royal Albert Hall nightly from mid-July to early September with music-lovers of all kinds, and with music ranging from classics to avant-garde. The programme for this year's concerts is much more than a mere listing, with fascinating articles on participating performers and composers, as well as background to the Proms phenomenon.
