    Tame, I'd say. A quick glance tells me no Mahler, Bruckner, Shostakovich.

    Perhaps it has something to do with copyrights by the conductors , to name one thing.
    For me it's a joy to see the concerts, as we do have BBC extra channels.

    IMVHO this is the worst TV schedule I've ever seen. There are only 5 programs I'm even vaguely interested in watching and, for the first time ever, I'm not going to bother with the First Night.
    There will come a time soon when Youtube won't let us do this...

    First night: well the Beethoven was good though rather theatrical, but the Adams is no first night piece and seemed to be just another excuse for the BBC to get all youth-centric. I watched it on BBC4 and had some sound break-up during the loudest parts of the Adams work, did anyone else experience this?

    I had the same sound problem. I enjoyed the Adams, though it might have come over better in the hall.

    Two Proms today.

    First on; mid afternoon UK time, morning US time.
    Prom 3: Bernard Haitink conducts Mozart and Schumann

    The Chamber Orchestra of Europe and Bernard Haitink are joined by soloist Isabelle Faust for Mozart’s graceful Violin Concerto No. 3. It is framed by two symphonies from Mozart and Schumann, which each represent a defiant, optimistic challenge.

    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart- Symphony No 38 in D major 'Prague', K 504
    Violin Concerto No 3 in G major, K 216
    Robert Schumann- Symphony No 2 in C major

    Isabelle Faust, violin
    Chamber Orchestra of Europe - Bernard Haitink

    Next on at 19.45 UK (14.45 EDT) Prom 4: Daniel Barenboim and Staatskapelle Berlin

    Sir Harrison Birtwistle- Deep Time (BBC co-commission with the Staatskapelle Berlin: UK premiere)
    Edward Elgar- Symphony No 2 in E flat major

    Staatskapelle Berlin - Daniel Barenboim

    Daniel Barenboim and the Staatskapelle Berlin bring the generous scope of their interpretation of Elgar's Second Symphony to their second concert of the season, celebrating a work whose modernity and astonishing textural effects startle even now.
    Dedicated to the memory of Peter Maxwell Davies, who died last year, Sir Harrison Birtwistle's Deep Time continues his career-long fascination with time and its manipulation in a sweeping new orchestral work that swaps the relentless tick-tock of the everyday for something more powerful and more alien.

    What a wonderful finish to tonight's proms. After the Elgar symphony no 2 which I enjoyed, amazing performance of Nimrod Variations and Pomp & Circumstance.

    Liked Harrison Birtwistles "Deep Time". Thought it had a Bartok feel to it!

    Pity about transmission breaking down in middle of first movement!
