Another chance to hear the BBC Concert Orchestra and principal conductor Keith Lockhart in this concert of music for the silver screen from both sides of the Atlantic.

Celebrating the centenary of his birth there's a tribute to the film composers' composer Bernard Herrmann, alongside music by today's greatest living exponent John Williams. Passages from Henry V accompany William Walton's iconic music, and there's a tribute to the late John Barry with two of his most famous themes. With additional music by Ennio Morricone, Richard Rodney Bennett at 75, and a suite from last year's film Norwegian Wood with music by BBC Concert Orchestra's composer in residence, Jonny Greenwood.
