When Edward Elgar became professor of music at the University of Birmingham, he was eager to share his love of Brahms’ Third Symphony. And you can hear why: because from tempestuous opening to final, glowing sunset, it’s romantic music at its most gloriously colourful. That’s the inspiration behind Mirga’s programme – a ravishing setting for the UK premiere of Jörg Widmann’s deliciously dark fairytale songs.
