Friday evening in London the First Night of the 118th annual BBC Proms takes place. For eight weeks many of the world's greatest orchestras visit for daily concerts in what is fairly called "The World's Greatest Classical Music Festival".

The concerts are all available live at the BBC iPlayer site and most are available on demand there for the following seven days. As I have in past years, I'll probably occasionally mention a concert that I especially enjoyed and think that you might as well.

Enjoy the music, not the equipment.
