Book description
Live at the BBC Proms: the BBC Concert Orchestra and Principal Conductor Bramwell Tovey perform classic British film scores, celebrating Malcolm Arnold on the centenary of his birth.

Live from the Royal Albert Hall in London.
Presented by Martin Handley.

Malcolm Arnold's rumbustious score for Hobson's Choice matches perfectly the wonderful, blustery performance of Charles Laughton in the title role; and he illuminates the mischievous antics of the naughty schoolgirls in his sparking score for St Trinian’s. Doreen Carwithen and husband William Alwyn are featured alongside highly regarded classic Walton and Vaughan Williams scores. We'll also hear excerpts from The Skull, written by the queen of horror film music Elisabeth Lutyens, the first British woman composer to write for a full length feature film; and, 50 years after his death, Alan Rawsthorne's brooding and dark Cruel Sea Prelude.

Carwithen, arr Philip Lane Overture – Men of Sherwood Forest
Arnold, arr Christopher Palmer Hobson’s Choice – Concert Suite
Rawsthorne, arr Philip Lane The Cruel Sea - Prelude and Nocturne
Walton Escape Me Never Suite

8.15pm
Live Interval: Matthew Sweet, the presenter of Radio 3's Sound of Cinema, shares his knowledge of film music focusing particularly on the career of Malcolm Arnold, born 100 years ago this October.
