About this event

An Anglo-French evening launched by the greatest of the nature tone-poems written by featured composer Frank Bridge. Simon Holt's double concerto for clarinet and flugelhorn takes its inspiration from the fantastical beasts of Greek mythology.

His solo instruments are drawn from different species, two distinct natures in one orchestral body. Marcel Dupré was a masterly executant who himself played Saint-Saëns's much loved 'Organ' Symphony at the Proms in 1935.
