Daniel Harding to conduct BBC Prom tribute to Sir Colin Davis
Daniel Harding will conduct a BBC Prom due to have been given by Sir Colin Davis who died last month aged 85.
The Prom will be dedicated to the memory of Sir Davis, who conducted over 140 Proms in a period spanning more than 50 years, beginning in 1960.
Elgar’s Symphony No. 2, which includes appropriately elegiac music, will be added to the programme on Tuesday 20 August replacing Sibelius’s Symphony No. 2. Otherwise the programme remains unchanged.
Harding, who will conduct the London Symphony Orchestra in his role as Principal Guest Conductor, also conducts a Prom with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra on Tuesday 30 July.
Sir Colin first conducted the LSO in 1959, and became the longest-serving principal conductor in the orchestra's history, serving for more than 10 years after his appointment in 1995.
