Elgar’s melancholic Cello Concerto went unnoticed for years until English prodigy Jacqueline du Pré made it her signature piece in the 1960s. It’s been a hands-down favorite ever since. Now audiences are abuzz over a new English prodigy: Sheku Kanneh-Mason, the 2016 BBC Young Musician of the Year. Kanneh-Mason plays with “urgency and bite, impeccable technique” The Times of London. The fiery Uruguayan maestro Carlos Kalmar returns to conduct the Elgar, Schumann’s Second Symphony, and a rarely heard overture by Sir Arthur Sullivan of Gilbert and Sullivan fame.
