We've been back and forth across the English Channel this summer, between two of Europe's most prestigious festivals: the BBC Proms and Lucerne. Making the leap with us this time, and settling along the blue waters of Lake Lucerne, is a wonderful British band that has a very special touch with the music of the late Romantics.

Martin Grubinger performing Frozen in Time (scroll down to "Percussion Mania - das ganze Konzert". Starts at 45:50).
