Prom 1: First Night Of The PromsThe two-month-long Proms 2015 festival at the Royal Albert Hall kicks off on Friday 17th July with pianist Lars Vogt and baritone Christopher Maltman as the soloists performing a programme that includes two exotic musical retellings of the story of the Babylonian king Belshazzar - one Walton's choral masterpiece 'Belshazzar's Feast' and the other by Sibelius. They are joined by the BBC Singers, BBC National Chorus of Wales, BBC Symphony Chorus and BBC Symphony Orchestra. Other musical pieces are Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 20, Nielsen's Maskarade overture 5, and Dadaville c6 by British composer Gary Carpenter who spearheads the 32 premieres in this year's Proms season.
