Prom 25: RPO/Dutoit at the Royal Albert Hall

THE TIMES ★★★★

If there was a theme to the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’s concert with the veteran conductor Charles Dutoit it was not a happy one. Here was Bartók, a collector of folk songs red and raw, with an opera as black as night and a fairytale without a fairytale ending. Here was Dvorák, a faithful husband and father of nine, remembering his late first love in music as soft and clear as sunlight through leaves. What do his Cello Concerto and Duke Bluebeard’s Castle have in common? Three words: leave me alone.
