A preeminent figure in 20th century music, William Turner Walton O.M. (1902-1983) raised the bar for composers from Britain. Turner excelled at traditional symphony and operatic composition, as well as scoring for motion pictures. This award-winning 1981 biographical production features segments from nearly two dozen of Walton's most famous works, including "Belshazzar's Feast" and "Crown Imperial" (written for the coronation of King George VI). It also features selections from scores for Sir Laurence Olivier's productions of Shakespeare's Richard III, Hamlet, and Henry V.
