The golden sound of the English String Orchestra is admired worldwide through the orchestra's many international recordings and broadcasts, and this concert by Worcester Live's own Orchestra in Residence showcases the ESO's world-beating form in the English repertoire, which has made them famous. Repertoire favourites by Elgar, Walton and Tippett complement a dazzling new trumpet concerto by Philip Sawyers, whose melodic flair and audience appeal have won plaudits worldwide. Simon Desbruslais, the "steel-lipped" trumpet virtuoso taking the music world by storm, is our featured guest artist.

Programme: Walton – Two pieces from Henry V; Elgar/Fraser – Salut d'Amour; Sawyers – Concerto for Trumpet, Timpani and Strings (world premiere); Simon Desbruslais – trumpet; Elgar – Serenade for Strings; Tippett – Little Music for Strings
