Royal Philharmonic Orchestra - Free
Vaughan Williams Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis
Elgar Cello Concerto
Dvorák Symphony No.9 From the New World
A cello cries out in sorrow, the woodwinds sigh, and like mist on an autumn river, a quiet melody drifts into the evening sky. Some pieces are classics for a reason, and Elgar’sCello Concerto is one of those works that touches everyone’s soul – just as Dvorák’s_ Symphony No.9 From the New World channels a nostalgia that seems to speak to listeners of all times and all nationalities (just don’t mention the Hovis advert!).
The hallmark of a true classic is that it always has something new to say, and that’ll certainly be the case when the award-winning young cellist Kian Soltani – whose performance at the 2015 BBC Proms was described by the London Evening Standard as “superlative” – offers his perspective on Elgar’s uniquely British masterpiece.
And with Rory Macdonald conducting the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Vaughan Williams’s Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis will open the evening in a vision of timeless beauty.
