Bach’s most familiar Brandenburg and Howells’ emotionally charged Concerto, written shortly after the deaths of his hero Edward Elgar and his nine-year-old son, bookend this programme showcasing the NYSO’s impressive talent and versatility. In between we hear a gently elegiac waltz, a fiercely chaotic fugue, and a musical joke.
