A Boy Was Born: City Of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO)

Thought you knew British music? Think again, as CBSO associate conductor Michael Seal conducts an evening of soaring passions and tender secrets. Elgar’s In the South explodes in a burst of Mediterranean sunshine, and as for his Enigma Variations – well, let’s just say that there are a whole host of wonderful secrets just waiting to be discovered beyond the famous Nimrod. Legendary British tenor Ian Bostridge brings all his insight and poetry to Britten’s sensuous, glittering song-cycle. Sit back and think of England…

Elgar In the South
Britten Les Illuminations
Britten Prelude and Fugue
