John Wilson conductor
Steven Isserlis cello
Three British classics of hypnotic poetic intensity open with Bax’s magical distillation of the Cornish landscape, inspired by the imposing presence of Tintagel Castle. The improvisatory musings of Walton’s favourite concerto are perfectly matched by the heartfelt meditations of Vaughan Williams’s Fifth Symphony, dedicated in appreciation to Sibelius.
This concert is part of the Sunday Matinee Series
