Brilliance and majesty are in abundance in a glorious programme that shines a spotlight on the brass and percussion sections of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
Copland’s ever-popular Fanfare for the Common Man provides a blazing start to this lunchtime concert, followed in true regal style with Handel’s jubilant Music for the Royal Fireworks, commissioned by King George II to accompany a firework display on the River Thames.
The concert concludes with a special arrangement of Mussorgsky’s colourful Pictures at an Exhibition, a musical gallery tour concluding with the grand Great Gate of Kiev.
