Conductor Thomas Dausgaard sets the scene with Britten’s dramatic Four Sea Interludes from Peter Grimes.
It is followed by Elgar’s much-loved Cello Concerto played by Steven Isserlis (‘immaculately expressive’ The Economist).
The concert ends with Rachmaninov’s last composition, the lively Symphonic Dances, which contrasts rhythmic vivacity with lyrical melodies.
