The London Connection

Big Ben & Boadicea Monument at sundown

 

Located on the River Thames, it’s more than just a city—it’s the business, political, and cultural capital of England—and the United Kingdom.

In this hour, music written for and about London—by Handel, Haydn, Elgar,
Vaughan Williams, Milhaud, and more.
