Sir Andrew Davis conductor | James Ehnes violin


Rawsthorne Overture ‘Street Corner’ | Elgar Violin Concerto | Vaughan Williams Symphony No. 9

Tickets (plus booking fee): £35 - £10



Here in Manchester, we’ve always done British music a bit differently. Haslingden-born Alan Rawsthorne turns a Lowry-like street scene into five minutes of bustling fun, while Elgar pours out his soul in the passionately romantic Violin Concerto. Conductor Sir Andrew Davis has spent a lifetime with this music; there’s no greater interpreter of the visionary final Symphony. An 86-year-old composer stares boldly into the future: what he shows us might surprise you.
