Sheku Kanneh-Mason Plays Elgar

Part of Classical music

The London Philharmonic Orchestra and Sheku Kanneh-Mason play works that evoke the magic of nature.

Jean Sibelius found a vast stillness in the endless forests of his native Finland, while an ocean voyage prompted visions of classical myth and elemental power.

Mälkki begins this concert with Sibelius’s warmest tone-poem and ends it with his gentlest symphony: in between come two very different visions of nature from two British masters.

Fresh sea air blows through every bar of Britten’s youthful Frank Bridge Variations.

And Edward Elgar retreated to rural Sussex to write his Cello Concerto, a work whose haunted poetry – as Sheku Kanneh-Mason (2016 BBC Young Musician of the Year) well demonstrates – takes on a fresh meaning for each generation.
