Programme Note

Since the Ten Pieces film launched last October, children in schools across the UK have been working on their own creative responses to music by Beethoven, Britten, Mozart, Mussorgsky and others, with the help of BBC ensembles. Some of the results now come to the Royal Albert Hall, where they will be performed alongside extracts from the Ten Pieces that inspired them. These two Proms are a musical celebration showcasing digital art, dance and new composition, bringing the first year of the BBC’s Ten Pieces project to a triumphant close. Barney Harwood and Dick and Dom join in the fun.
