Sir Mark Elder conductor
Dame Imogen Cooper piano

Vaughan Williams Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis
Ravel Piano Concerto in G
Sibelius Symphony No. 2

Vaughan Williams’ multi-layered masterpiece for double string orchestra offers a visionary opening to our new season before a welcome visit to Nottingham by pianist Dame Imogen Cooper. She’ll be performing Ravel’s jazz-tinged Piano Concerto in G, inspired partly by the composer having met George Gershwin. It’s a dazzling example of his ingenuity as an orchestrator, from the tender cor anglais solo in the sublime slow movement to the scurrying bassoon in its helter-skelter finale. Sibelius’s Second Symphony enjoys such popularity today that it’s hard to appreciate how unconventional it was in 1901. We find Sibelius at his most overtly Romantic, not least in the majestic finale, as upbeat and radiant as he ever gets.
