This famous concert hall dating from 1871 with an auditorium of 8000 seats, is the home of the well-known Promenade concerts organised by BBC Radio. Panufnik’s music featured in the Proms programmes on many occasions, beginning with his Sinfonia Rustica in 1955. After a long absence, caused by the hostility of BBC’s music management to composers representing less avant-garde styles, Panufnik appeared at the Proms in 1978, conducting his Sinfonia di Sfere.
