The BBC Symphony Orchestra and BBC Symphony Chorus under Edward Gardner, with pianist Louis Lortie.

: Symphonic Variations

'Egdon Heath'

Piano Concerto

Holst: '
The Planets'

(Champion of Lutosławski’s music and Music Director of English National Opera, Edward Gardner conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra in a programme contrasting one each of the Polish composer’s earliest and latest works with music by the British composer Gustav Holst.

Completed shortly before the occupation of Poland, Lutosławski’s Symphonic Variations is juxtaposed with Holst’s rarely heard tribute to Thomas Hardy, 'Egdon Heath'. Louis Lortie is the soloist in Lutosławski’s1988 Piano Concerto in a concert that closes with Holst’s 'The Planets'.)

(Note: at 5pm in the Royal College of Music there is a Proms Plus Inspire event. The Aurora Orchestra under Nicholas Collon performs the winning entries in this year's BBC Proms Inspire Young Composers' Competition.)
