David Bedford’s work transcends genre and style, reaching audiences in dynamic and refreshing ways. In what would have been his 80th birthday year, the BBC Concert Orchestra celebrates Bedford’s music in a concert spanning his 50 year career, including the instantly recognisable orchestral Tubular Bells and mesmerising Symphony No. 1.

The orchestra performs a world premiere by electronic musician Scanner drawing out the majestic and exploratory nature of Bedford’s compositions.
