  1. Overture, from Béatrice et Bénédict - Hector Berlioz
  2. Concerto for Cello and Orchestra No 1 in E flat Op 107 - Dmitry Shostakovich
  3. Pictures at an Exhibition - Modest Mussorgsky, orchestrated by Maurice Ravel

Berlioz’s Overture opens the concert with a merry excursion through the composer’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s Much ado about nothing, before Pablo Ferrandez 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 that forms Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition concludes the evening, a deep retrospective that commemorates the artworks of a lost friend with intensity and sensitivity.
