The Full Works Concert - Thursday 21 August, 8pm

Handel's Music for the Royal Fireworks provides the incendiary climax to tonight's Concert.

On the Concert tonight, Jane Jones has a brilliant, recent recording of Chopin’s Piano Concerto No.2, Grieg’s tuneful Peer Gynt Suite No. 2, the virtuosic cellist Jian Wang playing Boccherini, and a grand fireworks finale from Handel.
