Once upon a time
Changing Faces: Stravinsky's Journey
Stravinsky The Song of the Nightingale
Elgar Cello Concerto
Vasily Petrenko conductor
Andreas Brantelid cello
London Philharmonic Orchestra
In times of tragedy, composers have always told stories. Stravinsky turned from the carnage of the First World War to create The Song of the Nightingale: a strange, wondrously bejewelled cautionary tale of man and machine. Edward Elgar retreated to the South Downs to write his last great masterpiece – a haunted Cello Concerto wreathed in autumn woodsmoke. Andreas Brantelid will find all the poetry in this most beloved of British classics. And in happier times, Stravinsky’s old teacher Rimsky-Korsakov retold the Thousand and One Nights in music of dazzling colour and unforgettable melody.
