It’s taken a full 118 years for the male–dominated podium at the BBC’s celebrated
Last Night of the Proms to cede the baton to a female conductor, so Naxos artist
Marin Alsop is decidedly upbeat about her historic downbeat that will launch the
world’s largest classical music party on September 7.
Be sure to visit the BBC’s Last Night of the Proms page on September 7
at 7:30pm (GMT+1) to tune in to the live streaming of the concert.
