We are excited to see Kazuki Yamada, John Storgårds, Seong-Jin Cho, Augustin Hadelich and Christian Tetzlaff returning to the BBC Proms this summer. We are furthermore thrilled that Andris Nelsons and the Boston Symphony Orchestra will return to the Royal Albert Hall on 25 and 26 August as part of their European tour. On their second concert, they will be joined by Jean-Yves Thibaudet for a performance of George Gershwin’s Piano Concerto.
Another highlight of this year’s festival will be the return of one of the leading baritones of our time, Thomas Hampson, who will perform William Walton’s opulent cantata “Belshazzar’s Feast” with the BBC Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Klaus Mäkelä, on 4 August 2023.
Pianist and former BBC New Generation Artist Martin Helmchen will make his long-awaited Proms debut on 14 August. He shares the stage of the Royal Albert Hall with the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Sakari Oramo, performing Johannnes Brahms’ Piano Concerto no. 2.
Tickets for the BBC Proms are available from Saturday, 13 May 2023.
