Review

The second edition of Katie Derham’s Proms digest casts an eye and ear over the highlights of the past week at the Albert Hall and beyond. We’re told the focus of this programme will be on Walton’s Façade Suite No 1 from last Monday’s Malcolm Sargent 500th Prom, as well as Tuesday’s celebration of the work of Scott Walker.

The brilliant Jules Buckley orchestrated that late-night concert, and it’ll be good to hear how he approached it. He’s one of Katie’s sofa guests, alongside US violinist Tai Murray and Xian Zhang, the Chinese American conductor in charge of tomorrow’s MacMillan/Beethoven Prom. Plus, David Owen Norris is back to enlighten us with his Chord of the Week.
