Richard Harwood cello

ENESCU - Romanian Rhapsody No.2
BARBER - Cello Concerto
SHOSTAKOVICH - The Gadfly Suite

Welcome to the opening concert of our 2016/17 season.

We are absolutely delighted to welcome back the much soughtafter cellist, Richard Harwood, to perform Samuel Barber’s Concerto for Cello and Orchestra, a definite favourite amongst cello concertos of the twentieth century. Few will forget his spellbinding performance of the Saint-Saens concerto with the orchestra a few years ago - don’t miss this one!

To complete the programme for this spectacular opening concert, we bring you two of the most beguiling post-romantic works; George Enescu’s Romanian Rhapsody No.2 and Dmitri Shostakovich’s incidental suite to the film, The Gadfly. Enescu’s Rhapsody shows his deep affection for his beloved Romania with its wonderful gypsy-influenced themes. Shostakovich’s popular Gadfly suite contains the famous Romance and the swashbuckling Galop.
