Information

Berlioz’ Overture opens the concert with a merry excursion through the composer’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, before Pablo Ferrández performs Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto No. 1. The whirring machinery of the first movement unwinds into a more muted and sombre reflection in the second and third movements, before both soloist and the orchestra re-energise themselves with an electrifying vigour in the finale.


An evocative and dynamic series of images forms Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition concludes the evening and the series, a deep retrospective that commemorates the artworks of a lost friend with intensity and sensitivity.


Duration: approx. 2 hours (incl. interval)
