CD of the Week: The Official CD of the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant

This Sunday, the London Philharmonic Orchestra will be performing on the banks of the River Thames as part of the Diamond Jubilee Pageant – and in the run-up to the event, we’re giving you the chance to hear plenty of music from their new album.

Svendsen was intrigued and inspired by the new trends in music represented by Wagner, Berlioz and Liszt, a fascination which is evident in the works on this disc.
They’re all performed by the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra under Neeme Jarvi – a conductor who’s known for championing Nordic music.

Join John Brunning for Classic FM Drive: every evening at around 6.15 he’ll play a patriotic favourite from this new Jubilee recording.
