The Full Works Concert - Monday 22 September, 8pm

Tonight's Concert is all about the friendships that had an impact on the development of music.

Holst Vaughan Williams

On the 20th anniversary of the premiere of the legendary American sitcom Friends , Jane Jones takes a look at important musical friendships. The pairings include Bruch and Brahms ; Wagner and Liszt ; Vaughan Williams and Holst  (pictured); and Haydn and Mozart
