We’re delighted to return to the world’s greatest classical music festival for an afternoon concert directed by our Music Director Joshua Bell.
The programme includes Mendelssohn’s charming A Midsummer Night’s Dream overture and Beethoven’s graceful Fourth Symphony, as well as Frank Bridge’s poignant Lament (for Catherine, aged 9 “Lusitania” 1915) – an elegy for those who died following the torpedoing of the RMS Lusitania, and a work not heard at the BBC Proms since its world premiere in 1915. Our Music Director stars as soloist in Saint-Saëns’ lyrical and virtuosic Third Violin Concerto.
This event is part of the BBC Proms 2018 and tickets are managed by the Royal Albert Hall. General booking opens on 12 May 2018.
