Elgar: Symphony No.1 in A flat, Op.55

Johannes Moser (cello)
BBC Philharmonic
Juanjo Mena (conductor)

In his First Symphony, unveiled in Manchester in 1911, Edward Elgar saw beyond the recession in which Britain was languishing to express a 'massive hope for the future'. The symphony's noble main tune appears fragile at first, but when it returns at the end, it's carried home by an ecstatic orchestra filled with a spirit of uplifting optimism. The BBC Philharmonic and its Chief Conductor also present the London premiere of a work by its Composer in Association, Mark Simpson, and the marriage of modernity and beauty that is Dutilleux's cello concerto 'Tout un monde lointain...'.

Followed by a selection of recordings from this year's Proms Artists.
