Read more Palace ‘...some of the world’s finest classical artists gave their all. ...The whole atmosphere even before the concert was great. It doesn’t get better than this.’ THE MAIL ON SUNDAY

‘This is a souvenir d’occasion of the first ever public concert held in the grounds of Buckingham Palace… Bob Coles’s slick direction captures the spirit of the evening… undoubtedly gives us – the uninvited millions – a better view and sound mix than that which those present experienced. …[an] unmissable turn was the astonishing 12-year-old clarinettist Julian Bliss in Messager’s Solo de concours.’ BBC Music Magazine
