We've been talking to some of the world's finest orchestras to find out which piece they'll be voting for in the Classic FM Hall of Fame 2012. In this video we hear from the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra.
Formed in 1893, the orchestra has had an illustrious history which has seen collaborations with some of the finest composers, conductors and musicians in the world including Elgar, Bartók, Sibelius, Holst, Stravinsky, Vaughan Williams and Sir Thomas Beecham.
James Pullman, viola player of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, told Classic FM about one of the pieces the orchestra will be voting for in this year's Hall of Fame, and they've gone for a dramatic symphony that they're getting ready to perform in February.
