Vladimir Ashkenazy’s Masterworks

Ashkenazy conducts two Elgar masterpieces – the Cello Concerto and the Enigma Variations.

Elgar’s powerful and poetic Cello Concerto was his favourite and most candid creation. The greatest cello concerto in the repertoire, it’s a tour de force for sensational young soloist Andreas Brantelid.

Brantelid has the ‘ability to reach the emotional core of a work’ (BBC Music) – an asset in this deeply personal and impassioned concerto, a dramatic tussle between resignation and defiance.

Elgar’s gorgeous Enigma Variations is a portrait of his friends – at its heart is the hushed nobility of Nimrod, one of the most beautiful moments of music ever written. Vladimir Ashkenazy is devoted to this expansive and emotional music with its hidden ‘theme’ of friendship.

Tudor England echoes in the soaring vaults of Vaughan Williams’ magical Tallis Fantasia. The austere beauty of a 16th-century hymn is illuminated by music that shimmers and shifts like light though stained glass.

Light refreshments from 6pm. To book call 9707 9708.
