17 March 2021 Liverpool (United Kingdom)
Royal Liverpool philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Vasily Petrenko - Liverpool Philharmonic Hall
Program Info: Based on the commedia dell’arte character, Scapino has been described as a rogue, a scoundrel and a rascal – all of which Walton weaves into the lively opener. Then the whole Orchestra take over as soloists for Britten’s virtuosic Young Person’s Guide – no better way to get to know the different sections, whatever your age! These are just the delicious appetisers before Petrenko serves up the main course: Elgar’s heroic First Symphony. Elgar said he composed it ‘with a massive hope for the future’.
William Walton - Overture, Scapino Benjamin Britten - The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra, opus 34: composed in 1946 to accompany an educational film produced by the British government and featured in the Oscar-nominated film Moonlight Kingdom Edward Elgar - Symphony No.1
