Lights, camera, action! Cinema and transport combine in a glorious celebration of celluloid classics and speed. Walton’s Spitfire Prelude & Fugue tributes the courage of wartime, Addinsell’s tempestuous Warsaw Concerto from Brief Encounter offers a moving portrait of love amidst chaos. Expect thrills aplenty from the master of movie excitement John Williams in Indiana Jones’ action-packed Scherzo for Motorcycle and Orchestra and Matthew Hindson’s adrenalin-fuelled RPM. Or let the train take the strain with Vivian Ellis’s delightfully chugging Coronation Scot and the majestic elegance of Richard Rodney-Bennett’s Murder on the Orient Express.
