- Edward Gardner conductor*
- Frank Peter Zimmermann violin
Frank Peter Zimmermann plays Elgar's incomparable Violin Concerto.
Edward Elgar left more than one enigma and even today, no-one really knows the identity of the ‘soul’ whom the composer claimed to have portrayed in the music of his Violin Concerto. What we do know is that this is music of incomparable beauty and passion; British music at its most unashamedly poetic. It’s perfect, in other words, for the glorious sound and questing spirit of our soloist tonight, the extraordinary Frank Peter Zimmermann. Edward Gardner will be with him every step of the way, and follows up with Schumann’s noble, deeply romantic Second Symphony. Nourishment for heart and spirit.
*Edward Gardner’s position in the LPO in the 2023/24 season is generously supported by Aud Jebsen.
