Elgar’s Cello Concerto 14 August 2022: BBC Proms on BBC Four
Eva Ollikainen conducts the BBC Philharmonic in a Prom featuring three composers and three unique responses to the landscapes surrounding them.
Elgar’s much-loved cello concerto, rising from the autumnal woodlands of Sussex and performed by soloist Kian Soltani sits alongside Sibelius’s mighty Second Symphony – a musical national awakening in the composer’s homeland of Finland.
A world premiere opens the concert, a brand new commission from Anna Thorvaldsdottir titled, its craggy, elemental soundscape reminiscent of her native Iceland.
Presenter Petroc Trelawny is joined by special guests.
