To mark Beacon Europe Day, and the end of both the UK's EC Presidency and the European Arts Festival, on New Year's Eve, the Barbican Centre is presenting a day of music, drama and dance culminating in a 9.45pm concert of Wagner, Bax, Ravel and Rachmaninov given by the European Community Youth Orchestra under Vladimir Ashkenazy and featuring Frederick Kempf, 1992 BBC Young Musician of the Year, as soloist in Rachmaninov's Paganini Rhapsody.

Readers can buy pounds 10, pounds 15, pounds 20, pounds 25 tickets at two for the price of one by calling the Barbican box-office on 071-638 8891, quoting this offer.

Lloyds Bank, sponsor of the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition, has produced a limited edition CD of the concerto finals of the 1992 competition, recorded live at the Royal Concert Hall, Glasgow, last April and featuring Kevin Norbury in Gregson's Tuba Concerto, Rachel Barnes in Weber's Bassoon Concerto, Thomas Carroll in Shostakovich's Cello Concerto No 1 and the overall winner, Frederick Kempf, in the Paganini Rhapsody.

We have free CDs to give away to the first 50 readers to send their name and address, on a postcard, to: Lloyds CD Offer, The Independent, 40 City Rd, London EC1Y 2DB

Entry forms for the 1994 competition will be available in branches of Lloyds Bank from January
