BBC Proms Unmissable Moments 11 September 2022: Sunday on BBC Four

Take a whistlestop tour through the very best music from the 2022 Proms season in this one-off special. Eight weeks of world-class concerts become just 100 minutes of standout performances from the countless musicians who graced the Royal Albert Hall stage this summer.

The show is packed with tunes we know and love, with something for everyone. Emotional highlights include Elgar’s sublime Nimrod, the Proms’ tribute to the late, great Aretha Franklin, and a spine-tingling performance of the Ukrainian national anthem by the Ukrainian Freedom Orchestra.

Along the way, expect favourites like Handel’s majestic Zadok the Priest, Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, Beethoven’s epic Ode to Joy, and Dukas’s Sorcerer’s Apprentice.

There’s also fireworks from international soloists Yuja Wang, Kian Soltani, and Nicola Benedetti, as well as numbers from the first ever Gaming Prom and international superstar Cynthia Erivo’s Proms debut performance.

An ensemble of this year’s Proms presenters bring us this celebration of the greatest classical music festival in the world.
