Elgar's Cello Concerto

Sunday 3 November 2019, 3.00pm

VAUGHAN WILLIAMS Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis

ELGAR Cello Concerto

ROSSINI The 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.

Two Classic Hall of Fame works, Vaughan Williams’ melancholy Fantasia on a Theme By Thomas Tallis suitably set’s the scene as Jamal Aliyev takes the stage to perform Elgar’s most beautiful cello concerto. 

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. Lush, soulful, with a generous dose of energy.
