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

Courtney Lewis

Nicholas Trygstad, cello

“Today I saw 16 swans. One of the greatest experiences of my life. God, what beauty!” That transcendent vision inspired Sibelius to compose the finale of his Fifth Symphony, and one of the noblest, but simplest tunes, ever written. It’s hard to imagine a more magnificent ending to this concert from The Hallé – always popular visitors here at Warwick Arts Centre – under the dynamic young British conductor Courtney Lewis, who’s already made quite a splash in the USA.

Sibelius’s Fifth Symphony will make a striking contrast to the wood smoke and autumnal poetry of Elgar’s haunting Cello Concerto: one of those pieces that everybody loves, but which you simply have to hear live. The Hallé’s own Principal Cello Nicholas Trygstad takes the spotlight tonight, but not before we’ve visited the enchanted garden of Ravel’s ravishing Mother Goose suite: an exquisite opening to an evening of fantastical visions and fairy-tale wonder.

Pre-Concert Talk:
Helen Martin Studio at 6.15pm
Tickets: £2.50
