CBSO 2024/25: Kazuki conducts Elgar & Tchaikovsky

Thursday 19 June 2025

The Cello Concerto is one of Elgar’s last works – and one of his best.


It is a gorgeously rich blend of melody and melancholy, with one of the most powerful opening bars ever written for the cello. What an absolute treat to hear Sheku Kanneh-Mason in the solo role. Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony tackles fate head-on right up to its triumphant finale.
