David Parry conducts Beethoven, Schumann and Elgar | London Philharmonic

Saturday, March 16, 2013 - 19:30

Two masterpieces of manipulation: Beethoven’s iconic Fifth Symphony, built on an infamous four-note theme, and Elgar’s towering variations based entirely on a touching and chameleon-like improvised tune. Few works offer the cumulative power and familiarity that these do, and few offer orchestral brilliance hand-in-hand with dazzling intellect and resource. In between we hear Schumann’s Cello Concerto – an isle of bliss in an otherwise troubled life. And how you hear it in the music; through the touching song of the cello it marries sweeping greatness with technical brilliance, radiating content through its very human beauty.
