A British Wave With Sullivan, Britten, And Elgar
This program of all British music features works by Benjamin Britten, Edward Elgar and an 18-year-old Arthur Sullivan, who later went on to fame as the Sullivan in Gilbert and Sullivan. Pinchas Zukerman, whom we featured recently on viola, returns as the soloist in Elgar's thrilling Violin Concerto.
An agreement with the Kansas City Symphony allows us to share audio for this program up to four weeks after the program's original air date. You can listen to currently available episodes here.
