Programme Note

City of London Sinfonia performs Walton’s powerful music for Sir Laurence Olivier’s films of Richard III and Henry V, depicting the betrayal and intrigue of Richard III and the heroic battles and rousing speeches of Henry V. So integral was Walton’s music for Henry V, that he wrote the music for many scene’s before filming, with Sir Laurence Olivier building the action around his score. The performance is accompanied by some of the most evocative speeches from Henry V.
