In Edinburgh the orchestra plays a programme combining Villa-Lobos' Choros No. 10 with Bernstein's Chichester Psalms and Shostakovich's Symphony No. 5. At the Proms the orchestra gives two concerts. The first features music by Villa-Lobos and Rachmaninov, with the UK premiere of Kabbalah by the Brazilian composer Marlos Nobre, and Grieg's Piano Concerto with the Venezualan pianist Gabriela Montero. The second, late-night prom, members of the orchestra join the São Paulo Jazz Symphony Orchestra for a celebration of Brazilian music. The orchestra's programme in Lucerne repeats its prom concert.
