Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London
Presented by Louise Fryer
Youth and a celebration of national ensembles are major strands at this year's Proms and they come together in this concert. Two ensembles share the bill and each introduces a brand-new work in the context of mixed programmes of British music. And a suitably patriotic touch in this Jubilee year comes in the form of Walton's Crown Imperial and Derek Bourgeois's virtuosic Blitz.
