      Richard Strauss was just 20 when he composed his Suite for 13 wind instruments – and steeped in the musical tastes of his horn-player father, who revered Haydn, Beethoven and Mozart above all. Clarinettist Michael Collins and his ensemble London Winds pair Strauss’s youthful work with Mozart’s Serenade in C minor.

      Donald Runnicles conducts a programme that looks to the past – a musical meditation on history, death and loss that still speaks powerfully today, 100 years after the start of the First World War. The concert sets Mahler’s bitterly elegiac Ninth Symphony against the ecstatic string writing of Vaughan Williams’s Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis, a work reimagining an English identity that would so soon find itself under threat.

      Spiritual in a secular age, combining musical simplicity and generous radiance, John Tavener captured the public imagination like few others. The other-worldly atmosphere of a Late Night Prom frames a musical tribute to the English composer by the Tallis Scholars, leading the audience into the exact anniversary of Britain’s declaration of entering the First World War, at 11.00pm, in contemplative calm.
