In this all British programme, exploring the music of three contemporaries of the 20th Century, BBC NOW are joined by radiant Dutch violinist Simone Lamsma for Britten’s ever-popular Violin Concerto. With edgy ambivalence, expressed through intricate harmonies, lyrically introspective themes and vigorous rhythmic figures, the concerto is a virtuosic display of extraordinary power.

The music of Elgar holds a special place in Tadaaki’s heart, and audiences are in for a real treat with his Second Symphony. Tremendous in energy, opulence and musical athleticism, the symphony is a rhapsodic flow of original melodies, rhythmic playfulness and intricate, pearly, luminous qualities.

This is certainly a concert not to be missed…
