Philharmonia Orchestra: Britten, Adès + Vaughan Williams
It's all about the classic masterpiece tonight
Nicholas Collon conducts a best of British programme, picking two post-war pieces from Benjamin Britten and Ralph Vaughan Williams. The Finnish award-winning violinist Pekka Kuusisto performs Adès' violin concerto. Subtitled "Concentric Paths" this piece leads the listener through rings, paths, rounds, and up and down the garden path in the most audacious way. Seating allocated on arrival.
"Nicholas Collon brings consistent flexibility and momentum to a reading that never for a moment hangs fire."
