Bach’s familiar Brandenburg and Howells’s emotionally charged Concerto, written shortly after the deaths of his hero Edward Elgar and his nine-year old son, open this programme showcasing the NYSO’s talent and impressive versatility. In the second half we hear a gently elegiac waltz, a dramatic adventure in the Swiss Alps, and a musical joke.
