Wednesday evening in London Prom Concert 32 concluded with an excellent performance of Holst's "The Planets" by the BBC Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Edward Gardner. The Planets is one of my top favorites and I have 8 CDs out of the 20 or more versions that I've listened to. This thrilling/beautiful music, from "Mars, the Bringer of War" to the concluding "Neptune the Mystic" slowly fading away, has been the gateway for many into the world of classical music which is waiting out there for us. The intermission featured a talk by journalist Paul Morley, describing his journey to musical taste, from his early pop and rock which can now sound "quaint and dated", for which The Planets served as his entryway.

Available for 7 days on the iPlayer site here . The Planets begins about 10 minutes in, following the conclusion of the intermission talk.

On the BBC Sunday afternoon program, Prom 42, with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, was re-broadcast. A very enjoyable program overall, beginning with the stirring brass fanfares of Janacek's Sinfonietta and following with a performance of the Beethoven 3rd Piano Concerto. The concert concluded with Tchaikovsky's melodious 3rd Symphony("Polish"). Available for 5 more days on the iPlayer site .

Prom 68 opened the final week of the 2013 Proms earlier this evening with an excellent concert from beginning to end, with Vasily Petrenko conducting the Oslo Philharmonic. The program opened with the Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 1("Winter Daydreams")in which he had already demonstrated a mastery of the form. After forwarding about 20 minutes through the intermission, the exotic sounds Szymanowski created for his Violin Concerto No. 1 opened the second half. Rachmaninoff's final orchestral work, the beautiful Symphonic Dances, brought the concert to a strong conclusion.

Available for 7 days on the iPlayer site .
