Notes & Reviews:

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra performs the ultimate British spectacular. This release is full of pomp and circumstance celebrating the best of British music plus other well-loved light classics. This season the RPO celebrates 70 years at the forefront of music-making in the UK. With fourteen residencies across the country and a wider reach than any other UK large ensemble, the RPO has truly become Britain's national orchestra.
