ELGAR'S CELLO CONCERTO
The mysteries of a Bohemian fairytale unfold with playful dancing flutes and gentle strings in Vltava; a short symphonic poem from Smetana’s mighty Má Vlast (my country). This evocative piece is followed by Elgar’s sublime Cello Concerto; a staple of Classic FM’s Hall of Fame, and it is easy to understand why. The beautifully stark opening of the Concerto sets the tone of the music, soulfully communicating the passion and anguish of the human condition in a way that no words can.
The concert concludes with Dvořák's exhilarating and theatrical Symphony No.8, which creatively mixes traditional folk rhythms with thunderstorms of brass and timpani. The gentle waltz of the last movement gives way to an energetic finale, calling us to the dance!
FREE Pre-concert talk at 6.30pm with conductor Jirí Rožen.
We’re pleased to announce that for the RPO’s 2019 performances we will be hosting pre-concert talks in the auditorium with members of the orchestra. These will be free to attend (with unreserved seating) for ticket holders and last approximately half an hour commencing an hour prior to the performance time.
Enhance your visit to Wycombe Swan by booking a table in the popular foyer dining area, and choosing a delicious pre-show meal from our seasonal menu.
