Inheriting the mantle from Elgar, William Walton created some of the most inspiring expressions of the English spirit in music. The shining majesty of Walton’s Crown Imperial and Spitfire Prelude and Fugue imbues his Symphony No 1 married with the vigour of 1930s modernity. Richard Strauss, at the end of his long creative life, produced warm, radiant and witty masterpieces such as the Oboe Concerto. ASO Principal Oboe, Seung-Eun Lee takes centre stage in this perennially charming work.
Featured non-Australian music: Mahler, Strauss, Walton
