In The English connection, symphoniaASSAI explores the English musical identity and the historical connections between the work of the composers Edward Elgar (1857-1934), Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958) and Benjamin Britten (1913-1976).

Three composers in search of their own English idiom, a national music language that is inextricably linked to folk culture and the rolling landscapes that surrounded them.

Three musical heirs of Henry Purcell (1659-1695), considered by many to be the best English composer of all time, and would mean an indelible influence on their later works and for which they all had a huge admiration.
