Anthony Marwood, Violinist
The dramatic and moving Sinfonia da Requiem is an amazing masterpiece from Britten’s early years. Shortly before, he had hoped to study with Alban Berg, whose beloved Violin Concerto is played by the masterful British violinist Anthony Marwood. And Elgar’s opulent, deeply moving First Symphony is possibly the greatest symphony ever written by an Englishman.
