About this event

Moeran’s lyrical Violin Concerto meshes the composer’s English heritage with his love of the Irish landscape. The English theme continues with Elgar’s ‘Enigma’ Variations – his affectionate musical portraits of friends and family – and Walton’s Hindemith Variations, another intensely personal homage and the first work in this year’s focus on the music of William Walton. British music comes right up to date with the shifting soundscapes of David Horne’s Daedalus in Flight.
