London Symphony Orchestra under Robin Ticciati, with violinist Maxim Vengerov.
Maxwell Davies's Fanfare: 'Her Majesty's Welcome' (LSO commission); Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto; and Elgar's 'Enigma Variations'.
(In 2009 Sir Colin Davis was awarded the Queen's Medal for Music. This gala concert features other gold medal winners and also marks the welcome return to the LSO of violinist Maxim Vengerov. Following his recent illness, Sir Colin Davis has been advised by his doctors not to return to the podium before Christmas and sadly has had to withdraw from this concert.)
