Bringing together famous classical works from opera and stage, by composers such as Gershwin, Sondheim, Ravel, Elgar, Verdi and more, the afternoon will culminate in a dazzling finale of Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture, complete with roaring cannon effects.

Saariaho, Vaughan Williams

Leading Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho conjures voyages and marine moods in music of profound power and beauty in Oltra Mar. Vaughan Williams’ Sea Symphony, setting words by poet Walt Whitman, is an epic companion piece. Acclaimed soloists Gweneth-Ann Rand and Duncan Rock, alongside the Philharmonia Orchestra and Brighton Festival Chorus, bring Brighton Festival to a close on a suitably mammoth scale
