Benjamin Grosvenor performs Rhapsody in Blue
The massed forces of Britain's Parliament Choir and Bar Choral Society join the orchestra for Walton's lavish feast, taking the jazz influence of Gershwin and combining it with extrovert symphonic tradition.
Mothership brings such innovation to the 21st century, as an electro-orchestral spaceship welcomes improvising soloists to `dock' with it.
