A concert of 20th-century English music begins and ends with works exploring musical friendships - Walton's Hindemith Variations pay homage to a beloved colleague; Elgar's Enigma Variations paint evocative portraits of friends and family. Tasmin Little joins the BBC Philharmonic for Moeran's lyrical concerto which meshes the composer's English heritage with his love of the Irish landscape. British music is brought right up to date with the shifting soundscapes of David Horne's Daedalus in Flight.

This Prom will be repeated on Sunday 27th July at 16h00.
