City of Cambridge Symphony Orchestra

Elgar and Brahms

Elgar's violin concerto with soloist Joo Yeon Sir and Brahms' Symphony no.1

Elgar - Violin Concerto with soloist Joo Yeon Sir

Brahms - Symphony no. 1

Dramatic, symphonic, virtuosic, ‘too emotional’ (Elgar’s own description) and with its own enigma inscribed on the title page, Elgar’s monumental violin concerto provides a thrilling opening to the CCSO’s new season. Brahms’s Symphony no. 1, over twenty years in composition but worth the wait, gives us all we might want from a symphony: meaty outer movements, lyrical and lilting inner ones, and a chorale tune to rival Beethoven’s ‘Ode to Joy’.

CCSO is conducted by Robert Hodge.
