Prom 06 - Fung Lam, Rachmaninov, Prokofiev

With Penny Gore
Another chance to hear Wednesday night's Prom from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Fung Lam's "Endless Forms" is inspired by the last sentence of Darwin's "The Origin of Species", and "celebrates an insight into the diversity of life", explains the composer. "The title also relates to Buddhism's view of life as endless cycles of forms: birth, death, rebirth. The subject of spiritual enlightenment is a recurring theme in my output."

Presented by Petroc Trelawny.

Rachmaninov: Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor
