Last night in London the 124th season of "The World's Greatest Classical Music Festival" opened. For 8 weeks many of the finest orchestras and performers appear for the daily concerts. The schedule is here . All are broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 and are available on demand for 30 days on the BBC iPlayer .

As I have in past years I'll probably bring to your attention occasionally a concert I thought was especially enjoyable. For Prom 2 the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra performed Faure and Mozart works in the first half and after intermission(about 1:15 in) performed the highlight work of the evening, the complete score of the gorgeous music Ravel composed for Daphnis et Chloe.


Enjoy the music, not the equipment.
