Hugely expressive and wearing grand emotions on its sleeve, Schumann’s Fourth Symphony has a passionate advocate in our Chief Conductor Simone Young, with her deep musical understanding of Schumann’s own Romantic vision.
Written over 100 years later, Walton’s Cello Concerto shares the same romantic essence. From a dreamy and tender opening, the music blossoms, alternating between fiery passion and deep introspection. Award-winning English cellist Steven Isserlis brings out all the nuances and delicate nature of the concerto, drawing you into this intimate work.
