What a fantastic way to end the Season: a celebration of British music across over 100 years.

Elgar’s Symphony No. 1 is bursting with energy and an endless supply of tunes. Britten’s Serenade is a group of brilliant songs: by turn beautiful, haunting, and downright terrifying and British music is alive and well in the form of a brand-new piece by Dani Howard.

About Season Finale: Kazuki conducts Elgar’s First Symphony 

Where have I heard it before?

The absolute Britishness of Elgar's Symphony No. 1 appears in the absolutely British Wallace & Gromit film The Curse of the Were-Rabbit.
