Ireland: A London Overture
Walton: Cello Concerto
20:20 Interval Music
Vaughan Williams: Symphony No 5
After John Ireland's effervescent portrait of London, the BBC Philharmonic are joined by Guy Johnston to perform Walton's colourful Cello Concerto. The second part of this evening's concert will feature Vaughan Williams' spiritual Fifth Symphony - a central work in his output, which embodied a return to the more romantic style of writing after his abrasively dissonant Fourth Symphony.
