It was a night that music-loving Melburnians will never forget, when in November 2007, Sir Charles Mackerras conducted just one single, electrifying concert with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, bringing down the house and winning a Helpmann Award for Best Performance in a Classical Concert. The orchestra played out of its skin that evening in Elgar's most beloved orchestral masterpiece, and all the excitement of the occasion is captured in this live concert recording. This is heartland repertoire for Sir Charles Mackerras and the MSO, and the lush, richly textured melodies are presented in a glowing performance that also includes Wagner's mighty Venusberg Music and Delius' The Walk to the Paradise Garden. The entire spine-tingling feeling in the hall that night is captured in this rare jewel of a disc.
