Cristian Măcelaru conductor
Kian Soltani cello

Commencing with a high-octane opening, Glinka’s famous Overture to his opera Ruslan and Ludmila sets the scene before the young and exciting cellist, Kian Soltani, performs one of the great Romantic concertos; Dvořák’s passionate Cello Concerto.

Cristian Măcelaru conducts Tom Coult’s Codex, a piece inspired from the fantastical works of artist Luigi Serafini – it’s a compendium of imaginary animals and landscapes designed to charm and mesmerize the listener.

Listen to Tom Coult’s Codex

The dazzling orchestration and fairytale story within Stravinsky’s The Firebird Suite (1919) rounds out the 2018-19 season with a breath-taking finale.

Tonight’s concert is supported by Resonate, a PRS foundation initiative in partnership with the Association of British Orchestras, BBC Radio 3 and The Boltini Trust.
