Wigglesworth – Elgar & Britten
7:30pm Friday 10 May 2013 | Venues
‘The greatest symphony of modern times’ is how Elgar’s Symphony No 1 was described by Hans Richter, conductor of the first performance. Leading English maestro Mark Wigglesworth makes his debut with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra conducting this landmark English work. Also on the program is Benjamin Britten’s Sinfonia da Requiem, a poignant and heartfelt response to the ancient Mass for the Dead. These grand-scale works require a grand-scale orchestra. The TSO will be augmented by musicians from the Australian Youth Orchestra.
