BBC Proms "First Night of the Proms 2022" 15 July 2022: Friday on BBC Two 11

Clive Myrie and special guests present the first night of the Proms, live from the Royal Albert Hall. The eight-week season of exceptional music is kicking off with a bang as conductor Sakari Oramo and the BBC Symphony Orchestra take on Verdi’s monumental Requiem.

The orchestra will be joined by two choirs – the BBC Symphony Chorus and Crouch End Festival Chorus, as well as a quartet of superstar soloists: soprano Masabane Cecilia Rangwanasha, mezzo-soprano Jennifer Johnston, tenor Freddie De Tommaso and bass-baritone Kihwan Sim.

The piece bursts with lush melody, drama and musical fireworks, and the famous Dies Irae section will push choirs and soloists alike to their vocal limits.
