ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THIS PERFORMANCE

Andrew Manze conducts the BBC National Orchestra of Wales in a Prom with an atmospheric nautical theme.

Doreen Carwithen’s powerful and vivid overture depicts the harsh, cold Atlantic waters battering Bishop Rock, 30 miles off Land’s End. Its lighthouse is a seafarer’s last sighting of terra firma as they head west.

Grace Williams’s Sea Sketches, inspired by her home town of Barry in south Wales, capture the sea’s effervescent personality.

Vaughan Williams’s majestic A Sea Symphony, featuring multiple choirs, together with soloists Elizabeth Llewellyn and Jacques Imbrailo, rounds off the evening.

Georgia Mann presents alongside special guests.
