WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Part of the BBC Proms.
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 Epithalamium is a new cantata that delights in John Donne's sensuous and jubilant verse. Finish time: approx: 21:05
