image for Music - Classical item typeBBC National Orchestra Wales: Elgar & Rachmaninov at St David's Hall

Music - Classical, Thu 7 Dec 2017, £5-£40




BBC NOW welcomes back Conductor Laureate Tadaaki Otaka as he marks his 30th year with the orchestra.

Takemitsu’s luminous poem weaves a small idea into a rich ‘twill’ of sound that borrows from the ethereal worlds of Debussy and Messiaen. Similarly, Rachmaninov’s second symphony evolves from a small winding stream into tidal surges. Elgar’s cello concerto offers a different romanticism, tinged with both melancholy and subdued rage as the composer laments a nation lost to the ravages of war. Who better to capture this intensity than Steven Isserlis in the solo role?
