The July 31st concert will be dedicated to a performance of Stephen Sondheim's work, and will feature Bryn Terfel, Maria Friedman and Simon Russell Beale. Broadcasts, as for all of the Proms, will be on BBC2 television and BBC Radio 3.

I thought it was brilliant!
Highlights for me were Judi Dench singing Send in the Clowns, Bryn as Sweeney singing Epiphany and Sondheim going up on stage and being applauded by everyone. I'm still annoyed I didn't get to see it live, I only found out it was happening a few days before it happened!

Post Re: Sondheim Concert at the BBC Proms
I was there - it was brilliant, as was the Rodgers and Hammerstein one in the same Prom season. Judi Dench was heartbreaking and Bryn Terfel was hilarious (in Everybody Got to Have a Maid) and just plain menacing, especially to the poor piccolo player, in the segment from Sweeney Todd. Good work all round.

Also saw the Sondheim pre-Prom interview on the same day and have seen him interviewed on his career generally in London since. He always strikes me as someone without vanity - he believes in his worth but is modest with it, and not many performers would say 'I don't care' if you ask them whether they want to be remembered and how.
