This year's musical celebration brings Nicola Benedetti and Joseph Calleja, plus John Williams's Olympic Fanfare. Since taking the nation by storm as 2004's BBC Young Musician of the Year, Scottish-born Nicola Benedetti has enhanced her reputation as one of Britain's most innovative and creative young violinists. Joseph Calleja, the Maltese tenor who sings with the grace and elegance of the voices of a bygone era will also perform. A brace of Czechs acknowledges the sterling work of the BBC SO's outgoing chief, while contributions from 2012's anniversary composers include Delius's valedictory settings of Walt Whitman. More familiar home-grown music brings down the curtain in time-honoured fashion.
