The China Philharmonic Orchestra makes its Proms debut, launching this season’s global orchestras strand. East meets West in a colourful programme featuring Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance March No. 4, Liszt’s First Piano Concerto and Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition. Britain’s own queen of the trumpet, Alison Balsom, joins them in Shanghai-born Qigang Chen's new trumpet concerto, a work co-commissioned by the KT Wong Foundation, China Philharmonic Orchestra and the BBC, alongside Dutch and German partners.
