Since the hall's opening by Queen Victoria in 1871, the world's leading artists from many performance genres have appeared on its stage. It is the venue for some of the most notable events in British culture, in particular the Proms concerts, which have been held there every summer since 1941. It is host to more than 390 shows in the main auditorium annually, including classical, rock and pop concerts, ballet, opera, film screenings with live orchestral accompaniment, sports, awards ceremonies, school and community events, and charity performances and banquets. A further 400 events are held each year in the non-auditorium spaces. (Wikipedia)

LARS VOGT - Mozart Piano Concerto in D mnor - Sakari Oramo / Proms 2015

Lars Vogt performs Mozart's Piano Concerto in D minor with Sakari Oramo conducting the BBC Symphony Orchestra on the first night of the Proms in 2015. Mr. Vogt's exceptional playing is otherwise marred only his own rather unconventional cadenza in the first movement.
