Sir Andrew Davis conducts

English music has a quality all its own, whether in evoking the landscape, drawing upon history or capturing the sound world of a particular epoch. Vaughan Williams turned to the musical glories of Tudor England in his Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis, Benjamin Britten was inspired by the sea and sky of his native Suffolk, and Edward Elgar forged a distinctive personal style informed by the confidence and majesty of Empire.

The musical glories of England are showcased in this concert, which is conducted by Sir Andrew Davis, appearing with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra for the first time.
