Born in London to an English mother and a Sierra Leonean father, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor was a natural melodist and a musical pioneer, much admired for his lyrical gifts by Edward Elgar. His passionate Violin Concerto – long neglected, but now championed – is an ideal example of his captivating, rhapsodic music that touches the emotions and inspires the intellect.

British violinist Anthony Marwood continues his firm friendship with the SCO, taking the reins as both soloist and director in Coleridge-Taylor’s sublime Concerto. To complete this richly Romantic concert, Marwood offers the song-like beauty of Dvořák’s charming Romance, and the bold and bustling Second Symphony by the 18-year-old Franz Schubert.
