Prom 62 brought the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic in for a concert that started with Elgar's tuneful "In the South". The first half ended with a new work by Bell titled "Aurora" which had some interesting moments featuring wordless soprano solos.

After intermission four songs by Strauss were well-sung as a prelude to the feature work: Bartok's "Concerto for Orchestra", which displayed the virtuosity of various sections. A brief piece of attractive Rachmaninoff served as a closing encore.


Enjoy the music, not the equipment.
