English
Charm

With his majestic Symphony No. 1, here conducted by the dynamic Alexandre Bloch, Elgar gave English music its nobility. He created a symphony whose sumptuous serenity and calm is broken by episodes of torment and tumult. Jonathan Crow performs Walton’s Violin Concerto, a radiant work that demands the keenest virtuosity. A surprise is added to the program: at the opening of the concert, the Orchester Métropolitain will perform the Downton Abbey Suite, from the renowned TV serie.
