Join us as we shine a spotlight on the exceptional brass players and percussionists of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. This dazzling programme takes us on a musical journey, from Granados’ charming Spanish Dances and the bright fanfares of Italian composer Gabrieli, to the jazz-infused sounds of Duke Ellington and Jim Parker’s perfect musical evocation of the Big Apple. Celebrating great British works, we hear the music of Gustav Holst’s daughter, Imogen Holst, who made an enormous contribution to the country’s music, and a special arrangement of Elgar’s London-themed Cockaigne Overture.

Find out more about Jim Parker and A Londoner in New York and Imogen Holst's Leiston Suite.
