Ensemble 360 concludes the Festival with a celebration of that well-loved British music-making tradition: The Last Night of the Proms … with a twist.

Some of Elgar , Arne and Parry ’s most famous songs are played at every Last Night of the Proms, but tonight we hear a different side to these composers. Also traditionally heard is a contemporary piece, so Ensemble 360 performs Thomas Adès ’s theatrical and atmospheric Catch, featuring some surprising performance elements from clarinetist Matthew Hunt .

‘Rule Britannia’ is a well-loved part of the evening, and tonight we hear Beethoven ’s variations on the theme. Arnold ’s witty Shanties are performed as a playful alternative to Henry Wood’s Sea Songs.

Our Associate Composer Charlie Piper finishes the evening with a concoction of traditional Proms pieces to end the Festival with a bang!
