09/08/2011 Spaghetti Western Orchestra, Nicholas Collon

Presented by Petroc Trelawny. With the Spaghetti Western Orchestra peforming in the studio and conversation with conductor Nicholas Collon.

Presented by Petroc Trelawny.

The Spaghetti Western Orchestra is a highly original and unashamedly theatrical show. A quintet of multi-instrumentalists with impeccable comedy timing, recreate the magnificence of Ennio Morricone's most epic film themes. They perform live in the studio ahead of their late night Prom at the Royal Albert Hall.

Nicholas Collon is establishing an enviable reputation as a commanding and inspirational interpreter in an exceptionally wide range of music. As Principal Conductor and Artistic Director of Aurora Orchestra - 2011 RPS Award Winners - he has promoted imaginative programming that integrates challenging repertoire of the 20th and 21st centuries with masterworks of the Baroque, Classical and Romantic eras. Nicolas talks to Petroc ahead of his BBC Prom Matinee conducting the London Sinfonietta at Cadogan Hall.
