BBC PROMS 2011
Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London
Presented by Katie Derham
The BBC Concert Orchestra and principal conductor Keith Lockhart are joined by violinist Chloe Hanslip 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 brand new suite from last year's film Norwegian Wood - music by BBC Concert Orchestra's composer in residence, Jonny Greenwood - this promises to be a spectacular celebration of the best of classic and modern film music.
