Elgar’s Cello Concerto

Sunday 14 January 2024 | 3.00pm - BOOK HERE


Smetana Overture,The Bartered Bride

Elgar Cello Concerto

Dvořák Symphony No. 7



Gabriella Teychenné conductor

Laura van der Heijden cello


‘There is music in the air’ said Edward Elgar, and deep in the Sussex Downs, he found the inspiration for his Cello Concerto. A century later, we’ve taken it to our hearts, and in Prague they feel much the same way about Smetana’s The Bartered Bride and Dvořák’s Seventh Symphony. One is a sparkling romantic comedy, the other is one of the most passionate of great symphonies, but conductor Gabriella Teychenné will make them both leap to life today.

One of the leading cellists of her generation, Laura van der Heijden takes the spotlight in Elgar’s haunting, hugely-popular Concerto.

Pictures at an Exhibition

Brahms Violin Concerto

Mussorgsky Pictures at an Exhibition



Kahchun Wong conductor

Francesca Dego violin


It might have been the vodka talking, but when Modest Mussorgsky went to an art exhibition his imagination went into overdrive.Talking skulls, dancing chickens, ancient castles and a hut with hen’s legs: Pictures at an Exhibition is a riot of colour. Going to an art gallery was never meant to be this much fun, but for guest conductor Kahchun Wong it’s merely the climax of a whole concert powered by the imagination. Because when violinist Francesca Dego scales the Alpine peaks of Brahms’s radiant Violin Concerto, every note speaks straight to the heart.

Mozart Ballet Music from Idomeneo

Mozart Violin Concerto No. 3

Prokofiev Romeo and Juliet (excerpts)



Gemma New conductor

Randall Goosby violin


‘How silver-sweet sound lovers’ tongues by night, Like softest music to attending ears!’ Shakespeare’s star-cross’d lovers have inspired composers for centuries, but nothing quite matches Prokofiev’s great Soviet ballet: Romeo and Juliet retold in music as sharp as a rapier and as tender as a kiss. It’s hot stuff, but Principal Conductor of the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, Gemma New, and the ‘exquisite tone’ (The New York Times) of Randall Goosby, cool things down in the most elegant and enjoyable way imaginable – with a delicious concerto by the teenage Mozart.
