Two giants of British music on sparkling form.

Any suggestion that British music has a ‘stiff upper lip’ would be rebuffed by these glowing, expressive works. The passionate Elgar Concerto was given the mysterious inscription "Herein is enshrined the soul of ...". The CBSO’s leader Eugene Tzikindelean inhabits the enigmatic ‘soul’ of the piece in the soloist role. Walton’s Orb & Sceptre is suitably ceremonial, while his Symphony No.2 has been described as an "emotional blockbuster".
