Classic FM’s Car Concerts: Aled Jones sings along to Elgar and Holst in a Mazda 6

Classic FM's Car Concert with Mazda UK

Aled Jones and Tim Lihoreau go for a spin, with some magnificent Elgar and Holst.


When your car becomes a concert hall with two world-class musicians, you just have to sing along…

This week in Classic FM’s Car Concerts with Mazda UK, Aled Jones went for a musical spin with Tim Lihoreau – along with two surprise guests in the back seat.

Bassoonist Helen and trumpeter James treated the Classic FM presenters to a blast of ‘Jupiter’ – also known as ‘I Vow to Thee My Country’ – by Holst, and the famous ‘Land of Hope and Glory’ chorus from the Pomp & Circumstance March No. 1 by Elgar, starring Tim on the kazoo and Aled on the triangle.

And they were certainly a great addition to the concert…


Tim eventually drove them out of central London and into the countryside – so of course, Helen and James played Beethoven’s stunning ‘Pastoral’ Symphony to fit the occasion.
