The BBC Proms Concerts will be starting in London any day now. It's the largest music festival in the world, with dozens of concerts every summer, and it's a long-running one, too, having begun in 1895.
Any guesses what the most often played piece at the Proms is?
Thanks to their new online archive and search engine, such fascinating facts are now at your fingertips.
Hint: The way they calculate these things, every performance of an excerpt from a larger work constitutes a "play." So think of a work from which lots of excerpts might be taken. Find the archive here --- and stay tuned to MPR for lots of performances from this year's Proms, coming soon.
