Juanjo Mena to conduct two concerts at the 2017 BBC Proms

Juanjo Mena will lead the BBC Philharmonic in two concerts at this year’s prestigious BBC Proms Festival. The first is a concert performance of Beethoven’s only opera “Fidelio”, with a stellar cast of soloists and the Orfeón Donostiarra from Mena’s native Basque Country of Spain. And having conducted its successful premiere at the 2014 Manchester International Festival, Juanjo Mena leads the BBC Philharmonic once more in the first London performance of Mark Simpson’s “The Immortal”, followed by Tchaikovsky’s deeply personal Sixth Symphony.
