BBC Philharmonic - Wagner, Bruch, Elgar

Concert in which Paul Daniel conducts the BBC Philharmonic. Wagner: Lohengrin (Prelude to Act 3). Bruch: Scottish Fantasy (with Tasmin Little: violin). Elgar: Symphony No 1.

Live from Nottingham Royal Concert Hall.

Presented by Martin Handley.

The BBC Philharmonic, conducted by Paul Daniel, perform works by Wagner, Bruch and Elgar.

The festive Prelude to Act III of Wagner's opera Lohengrin opens this evening's concert, before the BBC Philharmonic is joined by Tasmin Little to perform Bruch's Scottish Fantasy. A central figure of German Romanticism, Max Bruch also spent a fair part of his life in Britain and his Scottish Fantasy makes great play with Celtic folk tunes and dances.

Elgar's First Symphony was praised as 'the greatest symphony of modern times' by its first conductor, Hans Richter. There's no denying its energy and epic sweep, but Elgar also finds time for some of his most delicate and poignant music.
