Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London
Presented by Katie Derham
In this Jubilee year, Handel's music for royal occasions is brought to the Proms by a leading French period instrument ensemble.
Both the Water Music suites and the Music for the Royal Fireworks were originally performed outside, in Green Park and on the river Thames, with a large group of players required. Here, Le Concert Spirituel is expanded to an ensemble of 80 musicians, to recreate the resplendent atmosphere of these festive occasions.
