'When I started learning the cello', the great Russian cellist Mstislav Rostropovich once said, 'I fell in love with the instrument because it seemed like a voice – my voice'.
Following on from previous series devoted to the piano and the violin, For the first time, LSO St Luke’s makes room for four concerts devoted to ravishing music for that same singing bass instrument. The line-up is good company: Narek Hakhnazaryan, still in his 20s and currently a BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist, is one of the brightest rising stars on the scene, while Christian Poltéra and Alban Gerhardt have both established outstanding international solo careers. The cast is completed by duos from the LSO’s own two brilliant Principal Cellos, Tim Hugh and Rebecca Gilliver.
Change of Programme
At the request of the soloist, Schumann's Adagio and Allegro has been replaced by Fauré's Élégie and Papillon. The rest of the programme – Brahms' Cello Sonata No 2, Debussy's Cello Sonata and Fauré's Après un rêve – remains the same.
