About This Event

The Academy of St Martin in the Fields returns to the Proms with director and soloist Joshua Bell in a wide-ranging programme, rich in melody and narrative.

Saint Saëns’s Third Violin Concerto is the Romantic display concerto par excellence but shares its light-footed musical grace with Beethoven’s Fourth Symphony and Mendelssohn’s overture.

Bridge’s Lament is an elegy for those who died following the torpedoing of the RMS Lusitania.
