Programme Note

In his First Symphony, unveiled in Manchester in 1911, Edward Elgar saw beyond the recession in which Britain was languishing to express a ‘massive hope for the future’. The symphony’s noble main tune appears fragile at first. But when it returns at the end, it’s carried home by an ecstatic orchestra filled with a spirit of uplifting optimism.

The BBC Philharmonic and its Chief Conductor also present the London premiere of a work by its Composer in Association Mark Simpson and the marriage of modernity and beauty that is Dutilleux’s cello concerto ‘Tout un monde lointain …’.
