The next best thing to being at the Royal Albert Hall.
The 2013 Proms begins with sea-inspired works by Britten and Vaughan Williams (the latter combining the 300-strong Proms Youth Choir and the BBC Symphony Chorus). A world premiere from Julian Anderson and two sets of Paganini variations by Rachmaninov and featured composer Lutosławski add piano stardust.
