Summary:
As the Proms enter a new millennium, the First Night adopts a new style. It starts with Aaron Copland's Fanfare for the Common Man and Leopold Stokowski's orchestration of JS Bach's most famous organ solo. Pianist Evgeny Kissin, who made his Prom debut as a teenager in 1990, plays an unashamedly romantic concerto made even more popular as the soundtrack to the film Brief Encounter. Sir Andrew Davis marks the start of his last Proms season as Chief Conductor of the BBC Symphony Orchestra with an encore of the blazing choral work with which he first launched his BBC conducting career 30 years ago - Leos Janacek's Glagolitic Mass, a pantheistic cathedral in sound.
