Our monthly feature
Schools have broken up for the summer and the dilemma about how to keep the children occupied during the holidays raises its head again. We’ve explored what classical music events are available – either free or at low cost – to entertain children and perhaps encourage them to explore something new.

Vendredi 18 juillet à 20h, sous la direction de Santtu-Matias Rouvali, l'Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France a interprété un programme consacré à Maurice Ravel. Une soirée inoubliable qui restera gravée dans les mémoires comme un sommet de musicalité. Festival de Radio France - Montpellier Languedoc Roussillon
Un programme qui soulève la question de la relation entre danse, musique et paroles. Philippe Jordan, Anja Harteros, et l'Orchestre de l'Opéra de Paris relèvent le défi au cours d'un concert aussi bien construit qu'interprété.
Concert programmes at the Proms often lean toward music of significant scale and heft. The requirement to fill the huge Royal Albert Hall, as well as capturing listeners’ attentions across the airwaves and in many different countries, means that huge expeditions, such as this year’s Ring cycle, are a perfect fit for the festival. Prom 44 was massive too, in its own way.
It was the golden jubilee of Saint-Säens as a concert pianist, and in celebration he performed his crowning glory, the Piano Concerto no. 5 in F, “Egyptian”, which he composed while on tour in Luxor, incorporating exotic Middle Eastern melodies and rhythms.
