John Wilson leads with Elgar, Ravel and Vaughan William's London Symphony

he 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.
