with John Brown (violin) Jeffrey Bryant (horn) Thomas Martin (double-bass) and the London Symphony Orchestra leader John Brown

Last year's series included a highly popular programme in which all the soloists were members of the London Symphony Orchestra, and tonight brings a new version of the same idea. Jeffrey Bryant plays Mozart's enchanting Fourth Horn Concerto and John Brown plays Beethoven's Romance for violin and orchestra. The novelty is a hideously difficult Concerto for double-bass and orchestra, written by Serge Koussevitzky and played by Tom Martin; and the programme ends with Leonard Bernstein's overture to his musical Candide.
