Benjamin Britten : Piano Concerto (1938)

Programme also includes
Ralph Vaughan Williams : Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis (1910)
Edward Elgar : Enigma Variations (1899-99)

On this all-British evening, Leif Ove Andsnes, our internationally
acclaimed piano star, performs Benjamin Britten’s virtuoso, melodic and easily accessible piano concerto, which was a great success when the 25-year-old composer premiered it in 1938. Tabita Berglund and KSO’s strings begin with Ralph Vaughan Williams’ beautiful and calm imagination on a theme by the Renaissance composer Thomas Tallis. After a break, we can enjoy Edward Elgar’s magnificent and multifaceted works of variation, built on his own theme and where a number of friends and colleagues are portrayed.
