About the Show/Event
Information for Prom 49 - The Lost Words Prom at The Royal Albert Hall, Inner London (Concert). Part of the BBC Proms. We celebrate the rich musical landscape of nature in a Prom inspired by the bestselling book The Lost Words, which revives disappearing words that describe the natural world. With a brand-new 'spell' by the book's author Robert Macfarlane, and live paintings from Jackie Morris, who created the original artwork, the programme includes the nightingale, quail and cuckoo calls from Beethoven's 'Pastoral' Symphony the Arctic bird cries of Rautavaara's Cantus arcticus and the carefree flight of Vaughan Williams's The Lark Ascending. A unique event for all the family.
