**We regret to announce that Mischa Maisky is no longer able to perform with us due to ill-health. We are so grateful that Norwegian cellist Truls Mørk is stepping in to play the same programme.

When Dvořák first heard America’s spirituals and plantation songs, he wrote that they would form ‘the future music of this country’. Rather sooner, the spirit of those melodies made their way into Dvořák’s most popular work. In his ‘New World’ symphony, the composer wove the songs of native America into music of intense warmth, drama and spontaneity. Nature shines through this most gregarious music, but so does the sense of sadness and longing that also colours the composer’s wistful Cello Concerto – another moving product of the Czech composer’s years spent expatriated across the Atlantic. Norwegian cellist Truls Mørk joins Marios Papadopoulos and the orchestra for this concert of heartfelt letters from America. The second premiere selected from last year’s composers’ workshop opens the concert.
