Concert Information

Tonight’s programme opens with Wagner’s lush and romantic Prelude to his opera Tristan and Isolde.

Recognised as one the most charismatic cellists of his generation, former BBC New Generation Artist Leonard Elschenbroich then joins the orchestra for Dvořák’s Cello Concerto.

The curtain falls on this evening with Elgar's Falstaff, a portrait of ‘a goodly, portly man… of a cheerful look, a pleasing eye and a most noble carriage’, as Shakespeare put it, and Elgar paints a similarly vivid picture of the fat knight in his witty, stirring masterpiece.
