BERLIOZ Batrice et Bndict: Overture
SHOSTAKOVICH Cello Concerto No.1
MUSSORGSKY, orch. Ravel Pictures at an Exhibition
Martyn Brabbins Conductor
Pablo Ferrandez Cello
Berlioz Overture opens the final concert of the RPOs 20192020 series with a merry excursion through the composers adaptation of Shakespeares Much Ado About Nothing, before Pablo Ferrandez performs Shostakovichs Cello Concerto No.1. The whirring machinery of the first movement unwinds into a more muted and sombre reflection in the second and third movements, before both soloist and the orchestra re-energise themselves with an electrifying vigour in the finale.
An evocative and dynamic series of images that forms Mussorgskys Pictures at an Exhibition concludes the evening, a deep retrospective that commemorates the artworks of a lost friend with intensity and sensitivity.
