BBC Symphony Orchestra
Sakari Oramo Conductor
Sakari Oramo continues his exploration of great British orchestral music with Elgar's ground-breaking first symphony and Bax's luminous tone-poem The Garden of Fand. While Bax's work evokes the Irish legend of the siren Fand in her watery world, Elgar wrote of his masterful symphony: 'There is no programme beyond a wide experience of human life with a great charity and a massive hope in the future.' We welcome back Australian composer and violist Brett Dean to play his concerto for his 'curiously beautiful, somewhat enigmatic instrument'.
