**Due to illness, John Wilson has regrettably withdrawn from Sunday's concert. However, we are delighted that Martyn Brabbins has agreed to conduct the concert at short notice, and the advertised programme of music remains the same **

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.
