Charles Hazlewood introduces another in the series of traditional summer concerts from the Royal Albert Hall. The Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra perform Hans Werner Henze's Fandango, Beethoven's Piano Concerto No 3 in C Minor with soloist Paul Lewis, and Symphony No 4 in F Minor by Ralph Vaughan Williams. The conductor's stand is taken by Paul Daniel.
The King's singers - tenor Paul Phoenix, counter-tenors Robin Tyson and David Hurley, baritones Gabriel Crouch and Philip Lawson, and bass Stephen Connolly - perform a unique blend of ancient and modem madrigals. Interspersed with songs from The Triumphs of Oriana - a 1601 collection in praise of Queen Elizabeth I - are seven new madrigals which have been specially commissioned from leading British composers and poets to mark the Queen's Golden Jubilee.
The concert is preceded by a film about the modern-day collaborations, and a conversation between Charles Hazlewood and some of those involved in the project.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
