E. J. Moeran's Symphony was written partly in Norfolk, partly in County Kerry, and seems to evoke the landscapes, seashores and folk idioms of both. Finzi's neo-Classical Grand Fantasia caps an unaccompanied and clearly Bach-inspired piano solo with a jaunty, finger-tapping Toccata. And we mark the 75th anniversary of Elgar's death with his Second Symphony, a nobly expansive exploration of past sorrows recalled and exorcised. Approx. end time: 22:05
