Just announced: Divan Orchestra to return to BBC Proms with Barenboim & Argerich

The West-Eastern Divan Orchestra returns to the BBC Proms with co-founder Daniel Barenboim and legendary pianist Martha Argerich.

The 17 August performance at Royal Albert Hall spotlights Wagner’s Tannhäuser Overture, orchestral selections from Götterdämmerung, and the Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg Overture; Jörg Widmann’s Con brio; and – with Martha Argerich as soloist – Liszt’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in E-flat major.

The concert follows the orchestra’s annual residency at Buenos Aires’s Teatro Colón and closes a tour of Europe that also includes performances at Salzburg’s Festspielhaus, the Waldbühne Berlin and the Lucerne Festival.
