James Jolly

James Jolly spotlights John Adams's Dharma at Big Sur, as well as music by Mozart and Haydn.

James Jolly looks ahead to music by John Adams in Wednesday's BBC Prom, with the composer's Dharma at Big Sur. He invites classical novices to discover more about the music with Mozart's Concertone in C, K190, and shines a light on Haydn's Symphony No 45 the "Farewell", which is the week's neglected classic. The featured young artist this Sunday is Vilde Frang, who will also be heard in Thursday's Prom.
