About this event

Afternoon heat breeds musical languor in a Prom that drifts from Delius’s summer garden to the classical landscapes of Ravel’s lovers Daphnis and Chloe. Former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Mark Simpson is the soloist in anniversary composer Nielsen’s intimate, playful Clarinet Concerto. Hugh Wood’s Epithalamion is a new cantata that delights in John Donne’s sensuous and jubilant verse.
