Prom 11: Ten Pieces Presents...RPO/Cottis, Royal Albert Hall

THE TELEGRAPH ★★★★

“Ten Pieces presents Sir Henry’s Magnificent Musical Inspirations” declared the programme of this children’s Prom. The reference was to the BBC’s classical music education programme “Ten Pieces”, which has so far reached four million people. That’s a great result, but to name something called “Ten Pieces” as “presenter” of a Prom containing 14 pieces seemed very odd. Sometimes, the BBC’s obsession with branding gets out of hand.
