Elgar Cello Concerto

27 Jan 2024 | 19:30 | Sheldonian Theatre, Broad Street

Vaughan Williams The Wasps Overture
Elgar Cello Concerto in E minor, Op. 85
Sullivan Overture Di Ballo
Delius Summer Night on the River
Haydn Wood London Landmarks
Coates Cinderella

Leonard Elschenbroich cello
John Wilson conductor

John Wilson brings his conducting wizardry to bear on some of the British music closest to his heart. Punctuated with buzzing overtures by Vaughan Williams and Sullivan, we hear orchestral pictures of Nelson’s Column, Horse Guards Parade and more from Haydn Wood; a serene interlude from Delius and Eric Coates’s London reimagining of the Cinderella story, the piece he considered ‘the best thing I have done’. At the heart of the concert is Leonard Elschenbroich’s performance of Elgar’s hard-hitting Cello Concerto, a work of brittle but beauteous lyricism that would herald the end of the age of innocence with passion and anger.

The Sheldonian Theatre is a unique space to experience live music. To see an interactive map of the theatre click here.
