The entire evening’s celebrations had been introduced by a buoyant brass fanfare written for the occasion by the LPO’s principal horn, Richard Bissill. A golden arc of brass was arrayed on stage, in two octet groups. And, as though in stereo, they played with their patternings of alarums and swooping melodies, all based on a jazz-waltz rhythm arising from the sound of the words “seventy-five”.
Hilary Finch (The Times)
