Is there a better-known or better-loved violin concerto than Mendelssohn's? Following her two solo Late Night Proms, and Proms Saturday Matinee appearance with Apollo's Fire, violinist Alina Ibragimova returns to perform this inventive and charming work, with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra.

They bring with them music by the young Norwegian Ørjan Matre and a new work by Russian-British composer Alissa Firsova inspired by Norse mythology.

This season's series of three Stravinsky ballets written for the Ballets Russes reaches its conclusion with The Rite of Spring, as ferocious and exhilarating a musical assualt now as it was at its notorious Paris premiere over a century ago.
