ELGAR In the South (Alassio)


SIBELIUS Symphony No.2

Jac van Steen Conductor
John Roberts Oboe

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

For centuries composers have been inspired by the great outdoors and in this concert Jac van Steen conducts a programme of such picturesque inspirations. Enthused by a holiday trip to the Italian Riviera, Elgar’s In the South (Alassio) is complete with flowing streams and chirping birds. Vaughan Williams’ Oboe Concerto, filled with folk-inspired pastorals and beautifully lyrical and tender melodies, provides a virtuosic showpiece for the RPO’s Principal Oboe John Roberts. Written at the turn of the century, Sibelius’ Second Symphony evokes the expansive glacial landscapes of his native Finland, culminating in a flourish of exhilarating heroism.
