British music isn’t always what you expect. Edward Elgar was a shopkeeper’s son from a country town, but his First Symphony spans worlds – a sweeping, multicoloured musical autobiography on a magnificent scale, burning with passion and beginning (as well as ending) with a melody you’ll never forget. Jonathan Woolgar comes from West Yorkshire, but in his award-winning Canzoni et Ricercari he travels in time to the Renaissance, unlocking new sounds of bracing power and haunting beauty. Our Chief Conductor Ryan Wigglesworth brings a composer’s creativity to these two astonishing scores – and is joined by the BBC Young Musician 2014 finalist, Martin James Bartlett, to celebrate the brilliance, the wit and the unchained inspiration of Mozart.
