Tickets "at the door" - until sold out
  1. Le chant du rossignol, 'Song of the nightingale' - Igor Stravinsky
  2. Concerto for cello and orchestra in E minor Op 85 - Sir Edward Elgar
  3. Scheherazade Op 35 - Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov

In times of tragedy, composers have always told stories. Stravinsky turned from the carnage of the First World War to create The Song of the Nightingale: a strange, wondrously bejewelled cautionary tale of man and machine. Edward Elgar retreated to the South Downs to write his last great masterpiece – a haunted Cello Concerto wreathed in autumn woodsmoke. Andreas Brantelid will find all the poetry in this most beloved of British classics. And in happier times, Stravinsky’s old teacher Rimsky-Korsakov retold the Thousand and one nights in music of dazzling colour and unforgettable melody.
