Royal Philharmonic Orchestra: Elgar Cello Concerto

SMETANA Ma Vlast: Vltava
ELGAR Cello Concerto
DVORAK Symphony No. 8

Opening the concert is Smetana's charming Vltava from the mighty Ma Vlast. Often likened to a musical painting, this evocative poem celebrates the rolling river that runs through the beautiful city of Prague.

The centrepiece of this concert is Elgar's sublime Cello Concerto. This concerto is a staple of Classic FM's Hall of Fame, and it is easy to understand why, as the piece soulfully communicates the beauty, passion and anguish of the human condition in a way that no words can.

The concert concludes with DVORAK exhilarating and theatrical Symphony No.8.
