VAUGHAN WILLIAMS Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis
ELGAR Cello Concerto
ROSSINI Italian Girl in Algiers Overture
MENDELSSOHN Symphony No. 4 'Italian'
Valentina Peleggi Conductor
Jamal Aliyev Cello
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
This concert is a perfect marriage of English and Italian orchestral favourites. Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis has been a staple of Classic FM’s Hall of Fame top three for many years. The rich variety of layers and textures in the work makes it a ravishing curtain-raiser for this afternoon concert. Following this, with equally lush English Romanticism, is Elgar’s sublime Cello Concerto, performed by internationally renowned cellist Jamal Aliyev, winner of the Sir Karl Jenkins Music Award 2017.
Mendelssohn’s buoyant and cheerful Symphony No.4, ‘Italian’ closes this concert with panache and flair; a charming expression of how Italy made him feel.
