Soaring melodies, jangling cymbals, and cello playing to die for.
A starburst of energy and colour. Anything’s possible when guest conductor Kevin John Edusei works his magic: whether it’s Dvořák’s Czech carnival or Rachmaninoff’s soaring Third Symphony – a song of longing for a lost world, with tunes to die for and a big-band swing. Or, most gripping of all, cello phenomenon Alisa Weilerstein throwing everything she has – and then some – at Barber’s punchy Cello Concerto.
