About the Show/Event
Information for Classic FM Live at Royal Albert Hall, Inner London (Concert). Classic FM Live is one of the biggest nights in the classical music calendar. Classic FM is back at the Hall for a spectacular evening of the most iconic classical music - performed live! Handel's stirring Zadok the Priest opens this special concert themed around classical music anthems, with many other Classic FM favourites also included. The renowned Royal Scottish National Orchestra will play classics such as Johann Strauss Jr.'s By the Beautiful Blue Danube and Finlandia by Jean Sibelius. The orchestra, conducted by Ben Palmer, will also accompany several world-class soloists due to be announced over the coming weeks. Classic FM presenters Alexander Armstrong and Myleene Klass will host this concert. Plus, very special guest Sir Karl Jenkins will take to the stage to conduct his own music - including 'Benedictus' from The Armed Man, 'Palladio' and the popular anthem 'Adiemus' - as part of the Welsh maestro's 80th birthday celebrations. A fantastic lights and fireworks finale will bring the concert to a close in memorable fashion.
