Classic FM Live with Viking is back at the Royal Albert Hall in April 2024, for a spectacular evening of the most iconic classical music.
Handel’s stirring Zadok the Priest opens this special concert themed around classical music anthems, with many other Classic FM favourites also included.
The renowned Royal Scottish National Orchestra and Chorus will perform classics including Johann Strauss II’s By the Beautiful Blue Danube and Finlandia by Jean Sibelius.
Conducted by Ben Palmer, Classic FM’s Orchestra in Scotland will also accompany several world-class soloists due to be announced over the coming weeks.
Plus, very special guest Sir Karl Jenkins will take to the stage to conduct his own music – including ‘Benedictus’ from The Armed Man, ‘Palladio’ and the popular anthem ‘Adiemus’ – as part of the Welsh maestro’s 80th birthday celebrations.
