Event has already taken place. A romantic masterpiece followed by stormy love, with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, conductor John Wilson and cellist Leonard Elschenbroich.
Edward Elgar’s Cello Concerto is a romantic masterpiece. Expressive music charged with lyrical melodic richness, elegance and longing passion. His countryman William Walton’s Symphony No. 1 provides a strong contrast with its emotional volcanic eruption.
While Elgar brings out the cello’s unique ability to convey both melancholic reflection and sincere desire, Walton’s symphony is a musical lava flow of suffering. The music is a powerful reflection of Walton’s stormy love affair with the Baroness Imma von Doernberg, who left him for the Hungarian physician, musician and art philosopher Tibor Csató in the early 1930s. The orchestra is led by the British conductor John Wilson, and the soloist is the acclaimed German cellist Leonard Elschenbroich.
