    Our May visit to the Southbank Centre’s Queen Elizabeth Hall features three contrasting symphonic works from the first half of the twentieth century.  Elgar's concert Overture, In the South (Alassio), was inspired by his time on the Italian Riviera, and brilliantly captures the rich landscape and history of that area. Talented young pianist Chris Hopkins joins us for Rachmaninov’s witty Variations on a Theme of Paganini. Shostakovich’s mighty Fifth Symphony, written just three years after Rachmaninov’s Variations, has been delighting audiences ever since it received a rapturous reception at its premiere in 1937.

    The contrasting musical traditions of classical Vienna and inter-war Berlin are brought together in the closing concert of the 2013-2014 season. We begin with Schubert's enigmatic and unfinished Eighth Symphony. Weill's rarely performed Second Symphony is an absolute gem of a work which conveys all the spirit of his more familiar theatrical output in a symphonic form.
