Vladimir Ashkenazy conductor
When Edward Elgar started to improvise a little tune at his piano one day, considering how a group of his closest friends might play that tune, he gave birth to one of the greatest masterpieces of English music – a score both uplifting and resigned, humorous and profound. We welcome back our good friend and Patron Vladimir Ashkenazy to conduct Elgar’s 'Enigma' Variations and the evergreens that precede it here, including Strauss’s dashing and dreamy first horn concerto from our very own Solo Horn, Pip Eastop.
The concert is scheduled to end at approximately 21:45
