The programme for the 2021 BBC Proms has now been announced, including the exciting news of Benjamin’s return to the series. Alongside the Halle Orchestra, under the baton of Sir Mark Elder, Benjamin will perform Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No.4 on Tuesday 7th September 2021.
The concert marks the 100th anniversary of the death of Saint-Saëns, and will therefore include his cadenzas in the concerto.
The event will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 and available for catch-up on BBC Sounds.
Benjamin's first appearance at the BBC Proms came in 2011 (aged nineteen) when he was invited to perform with the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the First Night. He has returned to the festival many times since, including an appearance at the Last Night of the Proms 2015.
