BBC Prom

8:00pm Saturday 4 August on BBC TWO

A very special performance of Britain’s best loved music for royal occasions – Handel’s Water Music suites and the Music For The Royal Fireworks.

Both works were originally performed outside, on the River Thames and in Green Park. In this Jubilee year conductor Herv� Niquet recreates the spectacular atmosphere of those occasions.

He brings the huge forces of the remarkable French orchestra Le Concert Spirituel to London, with 80 players, including 18 oboes, all playing specially made instruments.
