Embracing British music in all its rich and diverse range, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra leads you on a journey through green and pleasant lands in a concert that celebrates some of the country’s finest music. Vaughan Williams’ The Lark Ascending, with its lyrical and soaring violin line, features alongside the blazing fanfares and noble themes of Walton’s Spitfire Prelude and Fugue and Karl Jenkins’ inspired Palladio for string orchestra.

Elgar’s ever-popular, and quintessentially English ‘Enigma’ Variations provides a fantastic finish to this performance. This piece was a landmark not just for Elgar, but for British music. Elgar wrote his Variations in dedication to a number of dear friends, with one theme left unnamed, adding to the work’s mystery and intrigue.
