In its second Prom of the season, the BBC Concert Orchestra acknowledges this year's sea theme with highlights from Constant Lambert's wartime film score and Stanford's celebration of Britain's glorious naval past. The rarely performed violin concerto by long-neglected black composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, and Elgar's beloved orchestral variations, completes this feast of British music.
