Event Details

In 1919, in the aftermath of the Great War and as Elgar’s health began to fail, the composer poured his feelings into this haunting lament for a lost world. Poignant and restrained, the Cello Concerto is interpreted with maturity by Dutch cellist Teije Hylkema. The concerto is set against the assured sophistication of fellow Englishman Benjamin Britten's Sinfonietta. Mozart's Fantasia in F minor showcases Omega Ensemble's musical precision, while contemporary works by French composer Guillaume Connesson and Australia's own Mark Grandison are delivered with characteristic flair.
