Short, popular orchestral items make up the programme for this Sunday afternoon concert, starting with Holst’s tuneful three movement Suite in E flat. The score of Sullivan’s Yeomen of the Guard is generally considered to be the finest of all his operettas, including the Overture which has a grandeur befitting the title. The famous Overture to William Tell is a complete symphonic poem in miniature; its four parts carrying the listener from dawn in the mountains, through a storm and concluding with the well-known march. Finlandia, part of a suite of music Sibelius wrote for a pageant, is a concentrated burst of patriotic feeling. Elgar’s Imperial March, written to celebrate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee in 1897, created a great impression amongst the public and made his name widely known in London. Brilliantly scored, its overall structure marked a new beginning for the British ceremonial march.
