Prom 62 brought the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic in for a concert that started with Elgar's tuneful "In the South". The first half ended with a new work by Bell titled "Aurora" which had some interesting moments featuring wordless soprano solos.

After intermission four songs by Strauss were well-sung as a prelude to the feature work: Bartok's "Concerto for Orchestra", which displayed the virtuosity of various sections. A brief piece of attractive Rachmaninoff served as a closing encore.

The great Berlin Philharmonic visits for Prom 66 and provides a concert enjoyable throughout. The program begins with the brass-laden Prelude and atmospheric Poeme to LaPeri by Dukas. Next the Prokofiev Piano Concerto #3 was vigorously performed and the pianist added two encores by Rachmaninoff and Mozart to conclude the first half.

Following intermission the late-romantic themes(composed following the death of his daughter)of the Franz Schmidt Symphony #4 brought the evening to a pleasing conclusion.

The Berlin Philharmonic returned to perform another excellent concert in Prom 68 . For the first half two of Strauss's most popular and colorful tone poems, Don Juan and Death and Transfiguration, made up the program.

Following intermission the rhythmic themes of the Beethoven 7th Symphony were played in a manner that reminds one of the term "danceable"(to use a word that veteran members might recall from an entirely different audio context).
