BBC Philharmonic and John Wilson in Walton's searing First Symphony. They are joined by Alexander Gavrylyuk for Prokofiev's Third Piano Concerto.
Another chance to hear the BBC Philharmonic and conductor John Wilson in a concert from September last year. Kabalevsky's coruscating overture to his opera Colas Breugnon opens the programme and Alexander Gavrylyuk joins the orchestra for a stunning performance of Prokofiev's sparkling Third Piano Concerto. Walton's First Symphony, captures the spirit of the roaring thirties as well as his own response to a failed love affair.
