Louise Fryer introduces a concert of music by one of the 20th century's most provocative, revolutionary composers.

Welt-Parlament (World Parliament) was composed 30 years later and is a multi-lingual, virtuosic piece of choral writing for 37 singers, who form a futuristic world parliament discussing the theme of love. It receives its London premiere at the hands of Ex Cathedra and their director Jeffrey Skidmore, who promises listeners "an incredible spiritual feeling" by the end of this dazzling, demanding and hugely complex work.

Staatskapelle Berlin

Daniel Barenboim (conductor)

The first opera in Wagner's Ring cycle, Das Rheingold, introduces us to mythical stories of sword-wielding heroes, castles, magic potions and scheming dwarves, and the central corrupting influence of the all-powerful ring, guarded by the cruel water-sprites, otherwise known as the Rhinemaidens. A lecherous Nibelung dwarf called Alberich seizes the gold and heads to Nibelheim where he builds an empire based on fear and slave labour. We also meet Wotan the chief god in his castle Valhalla, and who when he hears of the all-powerful ring, decides he wants it for himself. Das Rheingold is performed by Staatskapelle Berlin and a stellar cast from both Barenboim's Berlin and Milan ring cycles. This is the first ever performance of Wagner's four Ring cycle operas in a single Proms Festival.

There will be no interval.

Arditti Quartet

Bamberg Symphony Orchestra

Jonathan Nott (conductor)

Written over the summers of 1901 and 1902, Mahler's Fifth remains one of the best-loved symphonies in the repertory, its famous Adagietto a love-letter to his wife, Alma. Before it, the brilliantly virtuosic Arditti Quartet joins the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra for Helmut Lachenmann's Tanzsuite mit Deutschlandlied, an abrasive, unsettling example of the composer's 'musique concrète instrumentale', whose metallic timbres and subtle textures promise to transfix and enthrall.

This Prom will be repeated on Thursday 18th July at 2pm.

Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 4 in F minor

Raphael Wallfisch (cello)

BBC National Orchestra of Wales

Jac van Steen (conductor)

The baleful fanfare of Tchaikovsky's Fourth Symphony heralds the BBC Proms complete cycle of his symphonies. For conductor Jac van Steen, it's a realisation of extreme opposites, and overcoming the contrasts: "The first movement is born out of the chaos that is an inevitable part of this process, it is concerned with darkness and fate, leading to a euphoric finale, where the energy turns to light and joy". Celebrating his 60th birthday this year, Raphael Wallfisch is the soloist in the Proms premiere of Granville Bantock's Sapphic Poem, launching the Proms focus on the composer this summer. Rich, lyrical and lushly orchestrated, it is framed by two very different portraits of Sir John Falstaff by Edward Elgar and William Walton.

This Prom will be repeated on Friday 26th July at 2pm.

The 2013 Proms begins with a surge of natural energy in sea-inspired works by Britten and Vaughan Williams, the latter combining the 300-strong forces of the Proms Youth Choir and the BBC Symphony Chorus.

Thomas Søndergård (conductor)

Evocations of Nordic forests, Persian gardens and snow-capped mountains feature in Thomas Søndergård's first Prom as Principal Conductor of the BBC NOW. Stenhammar's joyful Excelsior! is an upbeat to the opulent, exotic sound-world of Szymanowski's Symphony No. 3, 'The Song of the Night'. And Strauss's epic Alpine Symphony is as much a statement of the composer's personal philosophy as a description of the natural world at its most dramatic.

This Prom will be repeated on Monday 22nd July at 2pm.

Mezzo-soprano Clara Mouriz and the Compañía Antonio Marquéz join conductor Juanjo Mena and the BBC Philharmonic in Falla's colourful Ballets Russes commission 'The Three-Cornered Hat', a tale of intrigue and jealousy shot through with the spirit of Spanish folk dances.

Staatskapelle Berlin

Daniel Barenboim (conductor)

Daniel Barenboim's Ring cycle with the Staatskapelle Berlin continues with part two, Die Walkure, and more mythical and psychological forces at large. The opera opens with a turbulent prologue depicting the terrible storm and devastating events including incest and adultery that are about to shake the characters. Siegmund has been asked by Wotan to help him acquire the ring, but blots his copybook by falling for his long-lost twin sister Sieglinde. This angers Fricka, Wotan's consort, so much that she demands Siegmund's death. Brunnhilde, Wotan's rebel daughter who we meet for the first time, tries to defend him, but in punishment she is put to sleep on a rock surrounded by fire. Die Walkure is considered perhaps the most accessible of the Ring cycle operas, and ends with the powerful Magic Fire Music.

BBC PROMS02Bamberg Symphony Orchestra20130715

, Arditti Quartet and Jonathan Nott live at the BBC Proms with one of Mahler's best-loved symphonies and the UK premiere of a work by Helmut Lachenmann.

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Christopher Cook

Mahler: Symphony No. 5 in C sharp minor

Arditti Quartet

Bamberg Symphony Orchestra

Jonathan Nott (conductor)

Written over the summers of 1901 and 1902, Mahler's Fifth remains one of the best-loved symphonies in the repertory, its famous Adagietto a love-letter to his wife, Alma. Before it, the brilliantly virtuosic Arditti Quartet joins the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra for Helmut Lachenmann's Tanzsuite mit Deutschlandlied, an abrasive, unsettling example of the composer's 'musique concrète instrumentale', whose metallic timbres and subtle textures promise to transfix and enthrall.

This Prom will be repeated on Thursday 18th July at 2pm.

BBC PROMS02Britten, Lutoslawski And Thomas Ads20130717

The BBC Symphony Orchestra live at the BBC Proms perform music by Britten and Lutosławski, alongside the premiere of a new work by tonight's conductor, Thomas Adès

Thomas Adès conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra and soloists Christianne Stotijn and Simon Keenlyside in the world premiere of his Totentanz, a commission in memory of Lutosławski, which sets an anonymous 15th-century text that accompanied a frieze destroyed when Lübeck's Marienkirche was bombed in the Second World War.

This Prom will be repeated on Sunday 21st July at 2pm.

Julian Anderson's new commission sets some lines concerning nature and time by the 19th-century mystical writer Richard Jefferies. Stephen Hough performs one of the best-loved works in the repertory, kicking off a season in which the piano concerto will loom large. And 100 years after his birth, Polish composer Witold Lutoslawski is celebrated alongside the music of his compatriots, beginning tonight with one of his most popular pieces.

An edited version of this Prom will be broadcast on Wednesday 17th July at 2pm.

Huelgas Ensemble

Paul van Nevel (conductor)

One of the most enterprising and accomplished of the specialist vocal ensembles on today's early music scene, the Huelgas Ensemble and founder/conductor Paul van Nevel make their BBC Proms debut with a characteristically imaginative programme centering on the little-known repertoire of choral music from Renaissance Poland - most of it rarely heard these days, and some of it only recently re-discovered in the archives of the University of Warsaw. Alongside the Polish music are works by 16th-century composers from other corners of Europe - including the great Italian Luca Marenzio, the Dutch-born Johannes Wanning, and Christoph Demantius from Bohemia.

This concert will be repeated on Saturday 27th July at 2pm.
