About this event

The BBC Philharmonic's Chief Guest Conductor (who becomes Conductor Emeritus in September) continues his exploration of less-frequented corners of the repertoire, proceeding from an invigorating British concert-opener to an uncommon yet inescapably familiar concerto.

Inspired by the fact that Bach and Beethoven arranged their own violin concertos for the keyboard, Dejan Lazić has done the same for the Brahms with engagingly idiomatic results.

Julian Lloyd Webber is an ardent champion of Holst's Invocation. The concert ends with Elgar's affectionate sketches of 'friends pictured within' - a firm favourite that retains its own aura of mystery.
