    Daniel Barenboim and the Staatskapelle Berlin bring the generous scope of their interpretation of Elgar’s Second Symphony to their second concert of the season, celebrating a work whose modernity and astonishing textural effects startle even now.

    Dedicated to the memory of Peter Maxwell Davies, who died last year, Sir Harrison Birtwistle’s Deep Time continues his career-long fascination with time and its manipulation in a sweeping new orchestral work that swaps the relentless tick-tock of the everyday for something more powerful and more alien.
