Philharmonia Orchestra: Great British Classics

One of the world's great orchestras on your doorstep.

Martyn Brabbins conductor
Colin Currie percussion

Elgar Introduction & Allegro
Macmillan Percussion Concerto No. 2
MacCunn Land Of The Mountain And The Flood
Elgar Enigma Variations

Two Elgar masterpieces frame two Scottish works: the Second Percussion Concerto by James MacMillan and the irresistibly evocative Land Of The Mountain And The Flood by Hamish MacCunn. With their mysterious hidden theme, Elgar’s Enigma Variations paint portraits of the composer’s loved ones. The music sparkles with humour and orchestral flair, reaching profound emotional depths in the deeply moving nobility of ‘Nimrod’.
