Music can bring people together like few other things, and the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra playing Beethoven's 9th is a shining example on more than one level.
Our final concert from this year's Proms Festival is spectacular! The countdown to July 2014 (and next year's festival) has begun.
There's no other way to frame it - it's epic. Mahler's Second Symphony encompasses everything that life has to offer.
There's no one like Mitsuko Uchida - LOVE HER! And we get to know her a bit more in this week's show, when she talks about Beethoven and then plays Beethoven with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra.
We continue our series from the 2013 BBC Proms with this stellar concert featuring the amazing Vienna-based, Russian/Belgian violinist Vadim Repin.
