'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

Please note that, at the request of the artists, the programme for this concert has been changed to Beethoven's Cello Sonata in D major and Shostakovich's Cello Sonata in D minor. This replaces the original programme of Beethoven and Franck that was advertised when listings were first published.
