Although composed for the church, it is in the concert hall that the dramatic scale of Bruckner's mighty Mass in F minor comes into its own. A new commission from Luke Bedford puts the Royal Albert Hall's great organ in the spotlight, while opening the concert is Schubert's 'Tragic' Symphony, music of high drama seen through the eyes of a composer still in his teens.

[This Prom will be repeated on Thursday 6th August at 2pm].
