Join us as we celebrate the distinguished career of Royal College of Music composition professor Joseph Horovitz in his 90th birthday year.
RCM musicians bring his lyrical music to life, including a playful set of variations for saxophone quartet on Paganini’s famous Caprice no 24. The concert’s centrepiece is Horovitz’s Fantasia on a Theme of Couperin for wind nonet, which the composer conducts himself.
