Prom 58: Light Organ Prom

From the Royal Albert Hall, London, the annual organ Prom. Organist Richard Hills performs a selection of arrangements, original works and lollipops.

The annual Royal Albert Hall organ Prom this year saw the mighty Henry Willis instrument in a concert of light music. It's performed by the young British organist Richard Hills, who has an impeccable pedigree as a 'classical' organ player, but also a long-standing interest in the music of the theatre organ. His programme evokes the glory days of the instrument, in the mid twentieth century, with a selection of arrangements, original works and lollipops.

Presented by Christopher Cook
