The BBC Concert Orchestra and their Conductor Laureate Barry Wordsworth demonstrate their versatility in a mixed programme celebrating British music of different styles, including pieces written by Walton and Coates used to celebrate the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II 60 years ago, and Elgar's Nursery Suite, dedicated in 1931 to the Princesses Margaret and Elizabeth and their mother Elizabeth. The orchestra are joined by pianists Noriko Ogawa and Kathryn Stott in Malcolm Arnold's unashamedly attractive concerto and the programme ends with a celebration of old BBC radio signature tunes woven together in a medley by master arranger Gordon Langford.
