Concert dedicated to the memory of Malcolm Smith
Sir Edward Elgar
Elgar Cello concerto
Soloist Jamie Walton
Vaughan Williams Symphony No. 2 (London)
Bax’s best known work paints a vivid picture of the Cornish castle of Tintagel, battered by the Atlantic on a sunny day. Elgar’s wonderful concerto, contemplative and elegiac, has become a much loved cornerstone of the cello repertoire. The symphony depicts various London scenes, including the Westminster chimes, hansom cabs, street sellers’ cries, and the moods and tempos of our capital city.
