Ryan Wigglesworth joins the BBC National Orchestra and Chorus of Wales for a programme that spans four centuries, from Purcell's dramatic choral motet Jehova, quam multi sunt hostes mei, to the world premiere of Brian Elias's Cello Concerto, whose intricate, spiral structure creates a dream-like musical narrative.

The concert opens with Britten's most overtly political work - an impassioned musical stand against fascism that anticipates the composer's War Requiem; and reaches its culmination with Elgar's 'Enigma' Variations, which includes the much-loved 'Nimrod'.
