‘Parameswaran’s gentle, nuanced and detailed interpretation was extraordinary.’

– Music City Review

Beethoven set out to make the whole world drunk with joy, and from first note to last, his Seventh Symphony simply blazes with pure, irrepressible life-force. It’s a torrent, a celebration, a cosmic dance. Sounds like we’re overselling it? Just wait until you hear the Seventh played live by the full London Philharmonic Orchestra under our dynamic guest conductor Vinay Parameswaran. But then, everything about this concert is off-the-scale: from Sibelius’s stirring hymn to freedom, to the unchained melody of Dvořák’s glorious Cello Concerto – an ideal showcase for the inspirational young American cellist Sterling Elliott.

‘The key hallmarks of his playing were the singing quality and the nostalgia he brought to this score.’
