The music of Elgar and Walton speaks with a very particular accent, but its message is universal. Few artists understand that better than the BBC SSO’s Associate Guest Conductor John Wilson, and few have more of a gift for letting music speak. Wilson’s affinity with British music makes him a natural for Elgar’s bright ’n’ breezy Cockaigne overture. But when he joins forces with Leonard Elschenbroich expect to hear Elgar’s Cello Concerto in a completely new light. And expect Walton’s explosive First Symphony – a fusion of love and rage, forged at white heat in an age of anxiety – to go off like a volcano.
