Elgar Introduction and Allegro

Two of Elgar’s masterpieces bookend this concert of exceptional works for string orchestra, full of nostalgia for time and place. The ravishing Adagietto, Mahler’s love song full of longing to his wife Alma;  Elgar for his beloved Malvern Hills; Bartok for the folk music of his native Hungary; and Dvorak’s reflective gem. The lyrical Vaughan Williams Oboe Concerto, written for the great Leon Goossens, is one the outstanding works for the instrument.
