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.

Recorded last Wednesday at the Royal Albert Hall, London

Followed by great recordings from some of this week's Proms Artists.
