And a shaft of joy from London

Sir Colin Davis resumed conducting last night, leading the London Symphony Orchestra in the Mendelssohn violin concert (soloist: Sarah Chang) and Elgar’s second symphony. Next week he will conduct Dvorak’s violin concerto (with Anne-Sophie Mutter) and Janacek’s Glagolitic Mass.

Sir Colin, who is 83, pulled out of the BBC Proms this summer after suffering severe ill health and a close family bereavement.
