[edit] Information

Our Classical Century brings together the greatest moments in classical music in Britain over the last 100 years in a four-part series that celebrates moments of extraordinary music ambition and excellence, deep emotion and of great pleasure, and the artists who have brought audiences this music. Over the course of the series, viewers will see an hear how, over the past one hundred years, classical music has shown dazzling virtuosity and innovation, and how music provided a uniftying soundtrack to the times when national identity and destiny was at stake. Presented by Suzy Klein and Sir Lenny Henry, this first programme captures the profound influence of the First World War on our classical music - how it affected a generation of musicians and composers and how the music they created became a crucial part of the nation's sense of identity. From the martial might of Mars in Gustav Holst's The Planets to the pastoral beauty of Vaughan Williams' much loved The Lark Ascending, this film tells the story of the music which brought together the United Kingdom. Suzy Klein and Sir Lenny Henry reveal the phenomenal popularity of the musical extravaganza Hiawatha by the now relatively unknown Coleridge-Taylor, and examine the enduring impact of the American Jazz-Age with Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue. Suzy and Lenny also look at how Hubert Parry's wartime composition to William Blake's poem Jerusalem became the anthem of the Suffragette movement and at how the opening of Glyndebourne saw the start of a new chapter for opera in Britain.
