BBC Philharmonic

Sheffield International Concert Season 2021/22

Oval Hall | Sheffield City Hall

Programme: ELGAR Cockaigne (In London Town) (13), RAVEL Piano Concerto in G (23), VAUGHAN WILLIAMS Symphony No. 2 'A London Symphony' (44)

The BBC Philharmonic continues the season-long celebration of the 150th anniversary of Ralph Vaughan Williams’s birth with a performance of his ‘London’ Symphony. One of the English composer’s most evocative and atmospheric creations, this symphony is an imaginative and colourful portrait of the bustling capital in the years before the First World War.

Conductor John Wilson opens this concert with a work by another 20th century English composer; Edward Elgar’s vigorously excited and lusciously romantic stroll around the city of London. Winner of the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Instrumentalist of the Year in 2013, pianist Steven Osborne is one of Britain’s most treasured musicians.

Due to ill health the pianist Louis Lortie has sadly had to withdraw from this concert.
