Canberra Symphony Orchestra – ActewAGL Llewellyn Four

Concert or Performance

23 Oct 2019 to 24 Oct 2019

Umberto Clerici thrilled audiences with Schumann’s Cello Concerto in 2017 and now we welcome back the acclaimed Italian-born cellist for the final ActewAGL Llewellyn concert of 2019 with conductor Nicholas Milton on the podium.

Elgar wrote his dramatic Cello Concerto in the aftermath of the First World War, but it skyrocketed to the top of the charts when the 20-year-old Jacqueline du Pré recorded it in the 1960s, and with its beautiful, moving melodies, it has remained an audience favourite ever since. What better music to pair it with than that of the great Russian melodist Tchaikovsky? Tchaikovsky described his Sixth Symphony, which he conducted nine days before he died, as the best thing
he had ever written.
