A stormy impetus also characterises William Walton’s first symphony, probably one of the most important contributions to the symphonic oeuvre of the 20th century. The acclaimed 1935 premiere in London helped its creator to achieve his international breakthrough. This is the first time the work will be performed in the Historische Stadthalle.
