Today Tommy Pearson helps to celebrate Shakespeare's birthday with an airing of Walton's magnificent score to Laurence Olivier 's film of Henry V. Walton 's work is coupled with a recent performance of the Violin Concerto by John Adams. It has been said that Adams' music "gives the impression of a rediscovered liberty, of an open door which lets in the fresh air in great gusts." In this performance, given as part of a weekend devoted to Adams' music, the BBC SO is partnered by the young American violinist Leila Josefowicz.
