-CLASSICAL MUSIC PLAYS

-Listen... Something's coming.

0:00:020:00:04

It's rumbling up in the roof.

0:00:040:00:07

Sizzling under your seats.

0:00:070:00:09

Some people call it classical music...

0:00:090:00:11

..but I think it should be called...

0:00:120:00:14

brain-fizzing, mind-whizzing,

0:00:140:00:17

amazing music, and look, it's right here in the Royal Albert Hall,

0:00:170:00:23

to take us on an adventure into ten incredible pieces of music.

0:00:230:00:27

So, are you ready?

0:00:270:00:29

CHEERING

0:00:290:00:32

Then open your ears.

0:00:320:00:34

If you have a seatbelt, I suggest you fasten it now. If you don't...

0:00:340:00:38

Well, hold on tight.

0:00:380:00:40

My name's Barney Harwood, and this is the Ten Pieces Prom.

0:00:400:00:44

CHEERING

0:00:440:00:45

Ever wanted to travel through time and space?

0:00:540:00:57

Well, you don't need a lovely spaceship like mine.

0:00:580:01:02

ALARM BUZZES

0:01:020:01:04

All you need is some fantastic classical music.

0:01:040:01:08

And your imagination.

0:01:080:01:10

See, classical music's a little bit like having a spaceship.

0:01:130:01:17

It can take you anywhere you want.

0:01:170:01:19

So, when a man called Gustav Holst wanted to explore the planets...

0:01:210:01:26

Destination up ahead.

0:01:260:01:28

..he went into space using his imagination.

0:01:280:01:32

-Destination right there!

-ALARM BLARES

0:01:320:01:34

And he dreamt up music about Venus, Jupiter, Mercury, and...

0:01:340:01:39

Maaaaaaaaars!

0:01:390:01:41

MUSIC BEGINS

0:01:410:01:45

MUSIC ENDS, APPLAUSE

0:04:320:04:35

CRASHING, ELECTRICAL BUZZING

0:04:390:04:41

-Whoa!

-Aaargh!

0:04:440:04:46

-Hey!

-Whoa!

0:04:460:04:47

-Where...?

-Uh?

0:04:470:04:49

-Oh!

-Huh...

0:04:490:04:50

CHEERING

0:04:500:04:52

This is like...

0:04:560:04:58

some kind of weird, space, intergalactic gathering.

0:04:580:05:02

-I know. Look at them all.

-Yeah.

0:05:020:05:05

There must be about 6,000 aliens in here.

0:05:050:05:08

Yeah.

0:05:080:05:10

-I mean, look at this one.

-Ugh!

0:05:100:05:11

-That's a weird alien, isn't it?

-Isn't it just?

0:05:110:05:13

-You can tell by the boggly eyes and the slightly green complexion.

-Hmm.

0:05:130:05:17

Oh. Hey, look!

0:05:170:05:19

That must be the chief alien.

0:05:190:05:21

You can tell by the masses of grey, curly hair.

0:05:210:05:24

LAUGHTER

0:05:240:05:25

There's one over there, waving at us.

0:05:250:05:29

Hi, hi, my name's Dan Starkey.

0:05:290:05:31

I'm on the run and I really need your help.

0:05:310:05:34

-That's a long name.

-DAN SIGHS

0:05:340:05:36

Listen! Listen, there's a horrible troll after me.

0:05:360:05:40

The oven's on, and he's ready to turn me into Dan Starkey pies.

0:05:400:05:44

Ew...

0:05:440:05:46

When you say troll, do you mean a slightly chubby troll with,

0:05:460:05:49

kind of, slimy, grey skin and maybe, maybe really bad teeth?

0:05:490:05:54

Yes, yes, and yes.

0:05:540:05:56

If you see him, do me a favour and shout, "Troll!"

0:05:560:06:00

AUDIENCE: Troll!

0:06:000:06:03

Yep... Yep, that's right, you've got it.

0:06:030:06:06

Troll.

0:06:060:06:08

BOTH: Troll!

0:06:080:06:09

-There!

-Troll, there!

0:06:090:06:10

Aargh!

0:06:100:06:12

CHEERING

0:06:120:06:14

MUSIC: In The Hall Of The Mountain King by Edvard Grieg

0:06:140:06:17

OK, is that thing gone?

0:06:210:06:22

-CHEERING

-Are you sure?

0:06:220:06:24

Now, let's make some noise for the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.

0:06:260:06:29

CHEERING

0:06:290:06:31

And, of course, let's hear a big welcome

0:06:380:06:40

for the amazing Thomas Sondergard.

0:06:400:06:43

CHEERING

0:06:430:06:44

Now, this concert is happening because of you.

0:06:490:06:52

You've all been listening to ten great pieces

0:06:520:06:54

and we're going to hear all of them today.

0:06:540:06:56

But you've also been producing your own brilliant music,

0:06:560:06:58

art and dance, inspired by those pieces, and we're going to see some

0:06:580:07:02

of that during the concert, too, on the screens and here on stage.

0:07:020:07:05

So, do you want to hear some more great music?

0:07:050:07:08

CHEERING

0:07:080:07:10

OK, let's start with my favourite eight notes in...

0:07:100:07:14

AUDIENCE: Troll!

0:07:140:07:15

No. No, no, we've done the troll one. We've done...

0:07:150:07:19

BEETHOVEN'S FIFTH SYMPHONY INTRO

0:07:190:07:24

I was just going to say,

0:07:240:07:26

my favourite eight notes in the whole concert are those eight...

0:07:260:07:29

-AUDIENCE: Troll!

-What?

0:07:290:07:31

Ah-ha!

0:07:310:07:32

Oh, very funny.

0:07:320:07:34

Anyway, those are my favourite eight notes.

0:07:360:07:39

How did you know that, Thomas? That was quite cool.

0:07:390:07:41

Do you recognise them?

0:07:410:07:42

-AUDIENCE: Yes.

-Of course you do.

0:07:420:07:44

They are the opening notes of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony.

0:07:440:07:47

MUSIC BEGINS

0:07:480:07:50

MUSIC ENDS, APPLAUSE

0:09:280:09:30

Royal Albert Hall as quick as you can.

0:09:320:09:34

I'm on my way, Barney. I had to go get a wood block.

0:09:340:09:37

The orchestra left theirs in the cafe in Cardiff,

0:09:370:09:39

and you can't play this next piece of music without a wood block.

0:09:390:09:43

It's music called Short Ride In A Fast Machine,

0:09:430:09:46

which is just what I'm having now.

0:09:460:09:47

As quick as you can, please!

0:09:470:09:49

The composer of this piece, John Adams,

0:09:520:09:54

took a ride in his friend's sports car,

0:09:540:09:56

and after a crazy, scary, hair-raising ride,

0:09:560:09:59

soon wished he hadn't.

0:09:590:10:00

TRAFFIC HORNS BLARE

0:10:000:10:03

But it gave him an idea to compose music full of racing rhythms,

0:10:030:10:06

speed and energy.

0:10:060:10:08

And it's all kicked off by this, the wood block,

0:10:120:10:16

which is why the whole orchestra's going to be really happy to know...

0:10:160:10:20

..that I'm here!

0:10:220:10:23

CHEERING

0:10:250:10:26

And it's time for Short Ride In A Fast Machine.

0:10:300:10:34

MUSIC BEGINS

0:10:340:10:36

MUSIC ENDS, APPLAUSE

0:13:080:13:10

When we were told we were doing classical music, we were like,

0:13:170:13:20

"Oh, this is going to be the worst topic ever.

0:13:200:13:22

"This is actually going to be horrible."

0:13:220:13:23

Then the music started playing and it was just quite fun.

0:13:230:13:27

I think Ten Pieces is absolutely fantastic.

0:13:280:13:32

They're all, like, really exciting.

0:13:320:13:34

If someone were to tell me classical music is not for them,

0:13:350:13:40

I would say, "But have you listened to it?"

0:13:400:13:43

SHE HUMS 'IN THE HALL OF THE MOUNTAIN KING'

0:13:430:13:45

ORCHESTRA PLAYS IT

0:13:450:13:47

ALL: Yeah!

0:13:480:13:50

It's mind-boggling.

0:13:590:14:01

Makes you alive, really.

0:14:010:14:02

You can get lost in music.

0:14:020:14:03

I've seen a different side of classical music.

0:14:130:14:15

I never knew classical music could be so good.

0:14:150:14:18

APPLAUSE

0:14:210:14:23

LOW RUMBLE

0:14:230:14:27

It sounds to me like a musical storm is brewing.

0:14:270:14:31

I think you're right, Molly, which is actually great,

0:14:310:14:34

because our next piece, written by Benjamin Britten,

0:14:340:14:36

is all about a whirling, swirling, stormy sea,

0:14:360:14:39

and to perform their own dance inspired by Britten's

0:14:390:14:42

Storm Interlude from Peter Grimes,

0:14:420:14:44

let's welcome the boys of St Joseph's College, Ipswich.

0:14:440:14:46

You know, Molly, I think we're going to need the audience's help

0:14:560:14:59

-here, you know, to get the orchestra in the mood.

-Great idea.

0:14:590:15:02

Let's make our own storm.

0:15:020:15:04

We're all going to need some hand rubs, some clicks, some knee slaps.

0:15:040:15:09

And we're going to move the sounds around the hall like a Mexican wave.

0:15:090:15:13

OK, here we go.

0:15:130:15:14

HANDS SOUND LIKE LIGHT RAIN

0:15:170:15:21

CLICKS SOUND LIKE HEAVIER RAIN

0:15:240:15:27

KNEE SLAPS SOUND LIKE VERY HEAVY RAIN

0:15:300:15:34

Ha-ha, it's building!

0:15:350:15:37

DRUMS RUMBLE LIKE THUNDER

0:15:470:15:49

-Whoa! Molly, we should get out of here.

-Yeah!

0:15:490:15:53

MUSIC BEGINS

0:15:530:15:55

MUSIC ENDS, APPLAUSE

0:19:190:19:22

Hold on a minute, hold on a minute. W-What, what are you doing?

0:19:340:19:38

I'm taking a promfie!

0:19:380:19:41

And what, may I ask, is a promfie?

0:19:410:19:44

It's a selfie...at a prom! You know, a promfie?

0:19:440:19:48

Ah, so that makes this your promfie stick.

0:19:480:19:51

Yes, it's my promfie stick.

0:19:510:19:52

-OK, after three.

-Will we do it?

-Yes, let's do it. Here we go.

0:19:520:19:55

One... two... three...

0:19:550:19:58

Go! CAMERA CLICKS

0:19:580:20:01

-Nice!

-Very good.

0:20:010:20:03

OK, look, before we do another promfie,

0:20:030:20:04

-can I just check something out here?

-What?

0:20:040:20:07

-So, we're now in the audience, right?

-Yes, yes.

0:20:070:20:09

That is the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.

0:20:090:20:12

It is. Watch. Cooee!

0:20:120:20:13

ORCHESTRA: Cooee!

0:20:130:20:15

-You see?

-But who, may I ask, are all those other people,

0:20:150:20:18

-little people up there?

-The multicoloured ones up there?

-Yeah.

0:20:180:20:21

Ah, they, my friend, that is

0:20:210:20:23

the awesome Ten Pieces Children's Choir, and it's the perfect time

0:20:230:20:27

to introduce them because they're going to sing for us.

0:20:270:20:30

Oh, yeah, great. It's a piece a lot of you will already know.

0:20:300:20:33

MUSIC BEGINS Maybe you've heard it on the opening of the Champions League,

0:20:330:20:37

or maybe you've just sung it in the shower.

0:20:370:20:39

It's a piece that was written by George Frideric Handel

0:20:390:20:42

in 1727 for the coronation of George II,

0:20:420:20:46

and it's been played on very special days ever since.

0:20:460:20:50

And today is definitely a very special day,

0:20:500:20:54

so let's make some noise for the spectacular

0:20:540:20:57

Ten Pieces Children's Choir with Zadok The Priest.

Mussorgsky's Night On A Bare Mountain and...er, where's he gone?

0:29:320:29:36

Dick? Dick, you can come out of the toilets,

0:29:360:29:38

there are no more witches, they've all gone.

0:29:380:29:41

-I wasn't in the toilet. Course I wasn't in the toilet.

-Where were you?

0:29:410:29:45

-I was just getting this.

-Ooh, nice bag.

-Yes.

0:29:450:29:48

-What's in it?

-This, my little friend...

-Yes.

0:29:480:29:51

..is my very own homemade French horn.

0:29:510:29:55

-French horn?

-Yes, because next, the orchestra are going to play

0:29:550:29:59

-a horn concerto.

-Ah, concerto. Now, I know what a concerto is.

0:29:590:30:02

That's when one of these fine musicians over here

0:30:020:30:05

takes their instrument, takes centre stage,

0:30:050:30:08

-and they perform, they're the star for that piece.

-Exactly.

0:30:080:30:12

I've made a homemade one, which looks a little bit like this.

0:30:120:30:16

-Yes. And as you can see...

-This is your horn?

0:30:160:30:20

-This is my horn.

-Right.

-As you can see,

0:30:200:30:22

it takes on the same principles as a brass instrument.

0:30:220:30:24

It's basically a long pipe wrapped round and round and round,

0:30:240:30:27

with a mouthpiece at one end to blow into and a funnel at the other end

0:30:270:30:31

where the sound comes out of to make it nice and loud.

0:30:310:30:35

So...you are going to play a horn concerto...

0:30:350:30:39

-with this?

-Yes.

0:30:390:30:41

-Would you like to see this?

-AUDIENCE: Yes!

0:30:410:30:45

So would I. Shall I give you an introduction?

0:30:450:30:48

-Please.

-All right.

0:30:480:30:50

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Dick,

0:30:500:30:53

who's going to be playing Mozart's Horn...Concerto!

0:33:420:33:44

What inspired you to pick up the drum, of all instruments?

0:34:290:34:33

Er, because they're loud and I like them.

0:34:330:34:35

-LAUGHTER

-Fair enough answer, isn't it?

0:34:350:34:38

MUSIC ENDS, APPLAUSE

0:35:160:35:19

Eibhlinn, you composed that piece of music.

0:35:190:35:21

Tell me about how you were inspired.

0:35:210:35:24

Well, I just heard Beethoven's 5th Symphony and I immediately loved it,

0:35:240:35:27

the way he does it so vibrant,

0:35:270:35:29

and then I tried to incorporate some of the things,

0:35:290:35:33

like motifs and pizzicato.

0:35:330:35:35

0:35:400:35:42

ALL SHOUT

0:36:360:36:38

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:36:380:36:42

Ssssh!

0:36:460:36:49

I don't want to disturb you-know-who.

0:36:490:36:52

But I do want to tell you a story.

0:36:520:36:56

A story that was once told to the composer Edvard Grieg.

0:36:560:37:00

He wrote this next piece of music, In The Hall Of The Mountain King,

0:37:010:37:05

all about it.

0:37:050:37:06

Edvard Grieg was from Norway,

0:37:060:37:10

a country with enormous, tall mountains.

0:37:100:37:13

And inside one of these mountains was a kingdom,

0:37:130:37:15

a kingdom of trolls.

0:37:150:37:19

Now, you wouldn't want to make them angry, would you?

0:37:190:37:22

But that's exactly what a man called Peer Gynt did.

0:37:220:37:25

He found himself...

0:37:260:37:28

in a big, gigantic hall.

0:37:280:37:32

A bit like this.

0:37:330:37:34

It was very dark.

0:37:340:37:36

A bit like this.

0:37:370:37:39

And he could feel the eyes of thousands of trolls

0:37:390:37:43

all staring at him.

0:37:430:37:45

A bit like this.

0:37:450:37:47

And they began to lick their lips

0:37:480:37:51

and gnash their teeth

0:37:510:37:53

and decide it was time for dinner.

0:37:530:37:55

And if you're ever standing

0:37:560:38:00

with lots of trolls looking at you,

0:38:000:38:03

thinking about eating you,

0:38:030:38:06

a little bit like this,

0:38:060:38:08

then there's only one thing that you can do.

0:38:080:38:11

Very quickly...

0:38:110:38:13

and very quietly...

0:38:130:38:15

escape!

0:41:030:41:07

Dan, there's someone here that's been looking for you.

0:41:150:41:20

Look, Dan, Dan, the troll has been following you around

0:41:200:41:25

because he wants to give you a message.

0:41:250:41:27

SOMEONE SHOUTS OUT, "BOGIES!"

0:41:330:41:35

LAUGHTER

0:41:350:41:37

There's always one, isn't there?

0:41:370:41:39

This troll and everyone here want to say a big thank you

0:41:410:41:45

to all the teachers, musicians, supporters

0:41:450:41:48

and everyone who's been listening to music this year.

0:41:480:41:51

But the biggest thank you goes to all of you who have made art,

0:41:510:41:55

animations, dance and music about the Ten Pieces.

0:41:550:42:00

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:42:000:42:03

Aw!

0:42:030:42:04

This flight, with the magical Firebird,

0:42:070:42:10

is our last musical journey today.

0:42:100:42:12

But your adventure into the world of music is just beginning.

0:42:120:42:15

So all you need to do is decide where you want to go next.

Transferring the magical world of the BBC Ten Pieces film into an exciting and immersive Prom at the Royal Albert Hall. The BBC National Orchestra of Wales and conductor Thomas Sondergard are joined by firebirds and fast cars, magic mountains and mountain trolls, stormy seas and wicked witches, as they take the family audience on a journey through ten pieces of classical music.

Presenters include Blue Peter's Barney Harwood, Dick and Dom, and Friday Download's Molly Rainford. They introduce Mozart's Horn Concerto, Mussorgsky's Night on a Bare Mountain and John Adams's Short Ride in a Fast Machine. Also, the dancers of Trinity Laban perform Anna Meredith's striking body percussion piece, Connect It, and a massed children's choir of 450 sing Handel's Zadok the Priest.

The creativity of the nation's children takes centre stage, as their extraordinary artwork and performances in response to the pieces are showcased on big screens and the lucky few perform live on stage with their own dances and compositions. With a lively soundtrack, all-round action, audience participation, a few surprises and a lot of fun along the way, this is the fitting culmination to the first year of the BBC's biggest ever music education initiative, one which has already engaged half of all the primary schools in the country.
