Turn back the clock to the decadence of pre-war Vienna that inspired The World of Yesterday—the first concerto by British piano legend Sir Stephen Hough, who gives its world premiere performance with us. Then, step further back into the boisterous world of the Edwardian era with Elgar’s Cockaigne (a British term illustrating the humor, honesty, and strength of turn-of-the-century London). The final destination in this program led by Sir Donald Runnicles is Vaughan Williams’ Fifth Symphony, dubbed “Symphony of the Celestial City” for its essence of radiant light and sublime mystery.
