When Elgar’s First Symphony was premiered in Manchester in 1908, the audience jumped to its feet and cheered. 110 years on, it’s surely still the greatest of all British symphonies: a grippingly honest, intensely emotional self-portrait of an artist, crowned by maybe the greatest tune even Elgar ever wrote. Artist in Residence Jan Vogler will bring out all the passion in Schumann’s wonderfully poetic Cello Concerto, while Britten launches the evening with his Copland-inspired American Overture.
