Forget everything you thought you knew about British music, because Elgar’s Violin Concerto rewrites the rules – tender, tempestuous, and driven by a passion beyond reason. It’ll burn even brighter today, as the “wonderful” (The Arts Desk) Vilde Frang reunites with Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla. And then, with a blaze of trumpets, Spring marches in: Schumann’s First Symphony is playful, poetic, and as fresh as a daisy.
