Ravel - Mother Goose Suite
Elgar - Cello Concerto
Sibelius - Symphony No.5

Courtney Lewis

Nicholas Trygstad, cello

Music Director of the Jacksonville Symphony, Belfast-born Courtney Lewis opens with Ravel’s enchanting Mother Goose Suite: the five ‘fairytale’ pieces were originally composed for children. Elgar’s Cello Concerto is full of gossamer-light orchestral writing, delicate cello virtuosity and unforgettable melodies, featuring Hallé Principal Nicholas Trygstad as soloist. Sibelius, working on his Fifth Symphony, wrote: ‘It’s as if God the Father had thrown down the tiles of a mosaic from heaven’s floor and asked me to determine what kind of picture it was.’ His picture ends in triumph, the swinging phrases of what he called his ‘Swan Hymn’ ringing out in life-affirming fashion.
