The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) is excited to be returning to its home ground for a series of lunchtime concerts that will shine a spotlight on the different sections of the Orchestra.

Introduced from the stage, this informal 75-minute performance features the majestic brilliance of the RPO’s Brass and Percussion sections. The programme takes us on a musical journey, from Granados’ charming Spanish Dances and the bright fanfares of Italian composer Gabrieli, to the jazz-infused sounds of Duke Ellington and Jim Parker’s perfect musical evocation of the Big Apple. Celebrating great British works, we hear the music of Gustav Holst’s daughter, Imogen Holst, who made an enormous contribution to the country’s music, and a special arrangement of Elgar’s London-themed Cockaigne Overture.
