So it’s over for another year, and to Classical Source’s editor Colin, the staff and the numerous reviewers as well as members of the BBC Proms office who helped to make our coverage of the 2016 season so pleasing, I thank you.
With 75 Proms in the Royal Albert Hall plus others in Cadogan Hall and around the capital as well as the live-music Composers in Conversation events, this has indeed been a spectacular eight weeks of music-making.
We at Classical Source are proud to have covered every single concert (as we have for more than ten years) – 94 reviews this time – and I hope that we have given readers a flavour of what it has been like to sit in the Royal Albert Hall night after night.
While the 2016 Proms season may be ‘done and dusted’ our job is far from over. There are plenty of concerts and recordings to bring to your attention as we run up to Christmas. And if, like me, you are feeling a bit forlorn that Proms 2016 is over, you can start counting the days until Friday 14 July when the next season begins. We’ll be there – and I hope that you will be too.
