From its beginnings in the early fifties as a radio orchestra, the BBC Concert Orchestra has grown into one of the world's most respected and versatile orchestras, with an enviable reputation in light music, opera, ballet and musicals. Performing regularly on radio, television, and in the concert hall, it is featured on BBC's weekly radio program Friday Night is Music Night, and can be heard on countless television soundtracks, including Blue Planet and Planet Earth. Under the baton of principal conductor Keith Lockhart, who is also the conductor of Boston Pops, BBC Concert Orchestra performs music of British and French composers and is joined by pianists Charlie Albright. "Its style is gutsy…the ensemble is solid, not flashy." (Los Angeles Times)
