Sir Mark Elder conductor

Alisa Weilerstein cello


DELIUS Paris: ‘The Song of a Great City’

SHOSTAKOVICH Cello Concerto No.1


MUSSORGSKY Orch. Ravel Pictures at an Exhibition


Paris has always been a source of inspiration for musicians, among them Delius. Tonight provides a rare chance to hear the Bradford-born composer’s lyrical and fascinatingly-textured impression of the French capital. After the interval, a great Russian work gets French dressing in a performance of Ravel’s peerless orchestration of Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition. Inspired by the artworks of a friend, Mussorgsky superbly turned the visual into sound. S

hostakovich’s highly personal First Cello Concerto places ferocious technical demands on the soloist. Rest assured, the brilliant American cellist Alisa Weilerstein will more than rise to the challenge.
