BBC Proms - 2009 - Prom 09: Moeran, Finzi, Elgar - Part 1
Live from the Royal Albert Hall, Vassily Sinaisky conducts the BBC Philharmonic in some lesser-known works of the English repertoire. EJ Moeran's Symphony, introduced to the Proms in 1938 by Henry Wood, was written partly in Norfolk and partly in County Kerry and seems to evoke the landscapes, seashores and folk idioms of both locations. Finzi's neo-Classical Grand Fantasia caps an unaccompanied and clearly Bach-inspired piano solo with a jaunty Toccata.
