Prom 10
  Performance Date:     Seat Amount:    
Latvian organist Iveta Apkalna makes her Proms debut with a programme of French 19th- and 20th-century music.

Widor's thrilling Organ Symphony No. 5, with its famous final-movement Toccata, offers sprawling, extrovert drama, a mood it shares with prize-winning French composer-organist Thierry Escaich's exuberant Evocations, with their nods to Baroque and Renaissance music.

Works by Franck and Bach's great G major Fantasia, with its ‘wonderful variations and foreign tones', complete the programme given on the Royal Albert Hall's famous 'Father' Willis organ.
