The opening gala of the London Festival of Bulgarian Culture.
One of the leading Bulgarian symphony orchestras is joined by two of the finest choirs from London schools where Ralph Vaughan-Williams briefly taught himself, for a rendition of his Folk Songs of the Four Seasons.
The unique Bulgarian folk songs and dances are the inspiration for three of the greatest Bulgarian composers whose works will see their UK premieres in this concert.
