The ever popular Sakari Oramo continues his exploration of great British orchestral music with Elgar’s ground-breaking first symphony and Bax’s tone poem The Garden of Fand.
While Bax’s work evokes the Irish legend of the siren Fand, Elgar wrote of his masterful symphony: ‘There is no programme beyond a wide experience of human life with a great charity and a massive hope in the future.’ The Barbican welcomes back Australian composer and violist Brett Dean to play his concerto .
