Critics' choice

BBC National Chorus of Wales, BBC Symphony Chorus, BBC National Orchestra of Wales under Thomas Søndergård, with Michael Weinius (tenor).

Stenhammar: 'Excelsior!'

Szymanowski: Symphony No 3 ('The Song of the Night') – A journey from dusk to dawn and on into the night

R Strauss: 'An Alpine Symphony'

(Note: in the Royal College of Music at 5pm, a Proms Plus Family event. Join Rachel Leach on an epic climb up an Alpine mountain, from twilight to nightfall with every tiny detail described along the way. Free – part of a series of free family-friendly introductory workshops which take place before six specially selected Proms concerts.)

(Note: in the RAH at 9.20pm, a Prom Plus Late event. If you don’t want your evening to end with the last notes of the main concert, then the post-concert Proms Plus Late is for you. Relax with a drink and enjoy the informal post-Prom music and poetry from emerging young talent. Space is limited and priority will be given to audience members from the main evening’s Prom. Free)
