Memories of home, fabulous melodies and a journey from dark to light.

The earth is reborn from darkness in Grant Still’s stirring Poem. Rachmaninoff remembers his homeland in his energetic last work, The Symphonic Dances, while Dvořák’s Cello Concerto is full of beautiful, nostalgic ‘songs’. Brother and sister Joshua and Alisa Weilerstein are conductor and soloist for this afternoon's programme.
