About this event

Elgar's colourful tour of Old London Town prefaces a concerto from Michael Berkeley, 'inspired,' he says, 'by my impressionable days as a chorister at Westminster Cathedral'.

Marc-André Hamelin returns in Rachmaninov's dazzling Rhapsody, while the brilliant Háry János suite relates the unlikely exploits of a veteran hussar during the Napoleonic era.
