BBC Proms announce dates for 2021 season

The BBC Proms will take place this year in person at the Royal Albert Hall, in line with government guidance.

The BBC Proms has announced that it will run from Friday 30 July to Saturday 11 September at the Royal Albert Hall, with additional coverage on BBC Radio 3, BBC TV and online.

‘We hope to welcome live audiences back to our glorious home this summer, in line with government guidance,’ says a statement from the BBC Proms.

The Royal Albert Hall marks its 150th birthday today.

Last year’s Proms season predominantly took place online with a series of reruns of previous concerts. The last fortnight of the season took place in the Royal Albert Hall, with no audience

Thanks for this - if it indeed goes ahead as outlined it will be a powerful vindication of the supreme importance of music (and culture in general) in our benighted Society...

Yes, indeed. I heartily agree. Still, I can't help but wonder whether there will be any programmes over which I will salivate or if it will just be a combination of "the same old stuff" and first outings of modern pieces that slither back into well-deserved obscurity thereafter.

What was that you were saying about Job's Comforters?  Wink

I see that the (more-or-less) full programme has been announced, although I look for it in vain on the BBC news website. You can see it here, however:

24th August is a must for me but scrolling through now to examine the rest for nuggets.

My word, seems like a goodly harvest to me - I will rummage. Saints preserve us from Petroc Trelawney...

Better than usual, despite the fact that it's two weeks shorter. Agreed, re the dreaded Petroc. zzzzzzz

I'm glad that Malcolm Arnold is getting some recognition in his centenary year. According to my pull-out Radio Times guide the programme for the film music concert on 2nd September is slightly different:

Doreen Carwithen: The Men of Sherwood Forest - Overture
Malcolm Arnold: Hobson's Choice - Suite
Alan Rawsthorne: The Cruel Sea
William Walton: Escape Me Never - Suite
Elizabeth Lutyens: The Skull - excerpts
William Alwyn: Odd Man Out
Vaughan Williams: The England of Elizabeth - Three Portraits
Malcolm Arnold: The Belles of St Trinian's - Comedy Suite

And don't get me started on Katie Derham...



...according to the above-mentioned guide "Katie Derham will host many of the Proms on TV".

I wonder why they felt the need to amend the programme. As far as Arnold is concerned, at least Hobson's Choice and the wondeful The Belles of St Trinian's Comedy Suite remain.
