Tickets "at the door" - until sold out
  1. Fantasia on a theme by Thomas Tallis - Ralph Vaughan Williams
  2. Concerto for cello and orchestra in E minor Op 85 - Sir Edward Elgar
  3. Symphony No 9 in E minor, 'From the New World' Op 95 - Antonín Dvorák

A cello cries out in sorrow, the woodwinds sigh, and like mist on an autumn river, a quiet melody drifts into the evening sky. Some pieces are classics for a reason, and Elgar’s Cello Concerto is one of those works that touches everyone’s soul – just as Dvorák’s Symphony No 9, 'From the New World' channels a nostalgia that seems to speak to listeners of all times and all nationalities (just don’t mention the Hovis advert!).

The hallmark of a true classic is that it always has something new to say, and that’ll certainly be the case when the award-winning young cellist Kian Soltani – whose performance at the 2015 BBC Proms was described by the London Evening Standard as “superlative” – offers his perspective on Elgar’s uniquely British masterpiece.

And with Rory Macdonald conducting the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Vaughan Williams’s Fantasia on a theme by Thomas Tallis will open the evening in a vision of timeless beauty.
