Programme

Concert information

Elgar’s Third Symphony might have changed the course of British music – if only he’d lived to finish it. In 1997, composer Anthony Payne wove Elgar’s abandoned fragments into a full-length symphonythat’s infinitely more than one of music’s greatest might-have-beens: dark, noble and rich in Elgarian melody, it’s like hearing Sir Edward himself speaking to us once more, and no-one who loves his music can afford to ignore it. John Wilson, the BBC SSO’s new Associate Guest Conductor opens a new chapter in his ongoing love-affair with British music, and joins Ian Bostridge to explore the dappled shade and brilliant light of Britten’s enchanted Serenade. No living singer understands this music better than Bostridge.

Prelude: 6.45pm in the Recital Room
John Wilson talks about his love of British music.

The main concert will be recorded for future broadcast on BBC Radio 3.
