The LSO String Ensemble continues on LSO Live with three English masterpieces: Vaughan Williams Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis, a visionary fusion of folksong and sacred music; Britten Variations on a Theme of Frank Bridge, a challenging landmark of 20th-century string writing; and Elgar's Introduction and Allegro, an incredibly well-loved work with a special significance for the LSO, having been composed for and premiered by the Orchestra.
