Martin Henderson returns to the podium to conduct:

Elgar's tone poem in the South. Conceived while the Elgars were holidaying in Italy, the overture’s moods reflect those of the composer at the time—fluctuating from morose to excitable and stoic to playful
Mozart's Bassoon Concerto is the first of his woodwind concertos Written when he was only 18 it is a 'little masterpiece'.
Anton Bruckner's Symphony No 4, given the title the Romantic Symphony on account of its ambitious scope and grand emotional gestures was the first of Bruckner’s symphonies to achieve public success, and it remains among his most frequently performed works.

Martin is an enthusiastic and accomplished conductor of amateur orchestras and a professional double bass player having held the position of principal bass in the BBC Concert Orchestra.
