Elgar’s Cello Concerto conducted by Kirill Karabits

The Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra returns under Chief Conductor Kirill Karabits to recall memories of music past. In Mason Bates’s evocative Auditorium, the orchestra is ‘possessed’ by a ghostly Baroque ancestor. Janáček’s rhapsodic suite Taras Bulba looks back to Czech folk music in three battle-charged episodes from Gogol’s novella. The bittersweet, poignant beauty of Elgar’s Cello Concerto draws on another conflict: the cataclysmic loss and suffering of the First World War.
