About this event

The Royal Albert Hall’s great organ is showcased in a series of Proms this year, starting with Poulenc’s Baroque-inspired Organ Concerto – all Gothic flourishes and grand gestures. Also gazing back to the Baroque, Stravinsky’s Symphony of Psalms is a devout musical gesture, reimagining religious rituals on a symphonic scale. The second half pairs two Classical masterpieces: Haydn’s cheery Te Deum and Mozart’s enduringly popular ‘Jupiter’ Symphony.
