Jonathan James: War and Music

Getting to grips with the theme of tonight's Bristol Proms concerts, Jonathan James takes us on a journey through the music that is synonymous with war.

The theme of Tuesday's concerts is Music in the Shadow of War, so who better than Jonathan James to kick things off with an involving and charged talk on music as it was before war broke out.

Get to the heart of the matter with Jonathan, who will guide the audience through various different works and ideas in his own inimitable style, with the aid of audio-visual materials and maybe even a little bit of ivory-tinkling.
