A new André Previn piece opens a wonderful all-American related programme under dynamic conductor William Eddins. The elegiac imagery of Walt Whitman's poem - lilacs piled on President Lincoln's coffin as it was taken across the country after his assassination - inspired Hindemith's visionary and intensely moving setting. Barber's lyrical and explosive concerto is just the vehicle for celebrated composer/pianist Philip Martin.
