English Symphony Orchestra
Conductor: Kenneth Woods

Beethoven’s visionary seventh symphony is the sprightly conclusion to this concert featuring the English Symphony Orchestra’s latest premiere in a commissioning cycle championing today’s most exciting symphonists. Steve Elcock’s music is characterised by vivid orchestrations and a sweeping emotional range rooted in symphonic tradition, and yet entirely distinctive.
