Classical Season 2019/20 | RNS at Home
with Post-Concert Spotlight Performance
Julian Rachlin conductor
Alexander Buzlov cello
Royal Northern Sinfonia
Dvořák Cello Concerto
Brahms Symphony No.1
Brahms’ First Symphony opens with the pounding of a broken heart, and ends with the kind of melody that comes once in a lifetime. Forget the image of Brahms as an old man with a big beard: this is the full-blooded music of a young genius, unhappy in love, and under RNS principal guest conductor Julian Rachlin it’ll summon up truly mountainous emotions. Dvořák’s Cello Concerto is – if anything – even more passionate; inspired by Niagara Falls and a long-forgotten romance, it’s a piece that wears its heart unashamedly on its sleeve. Perfect, in other words, for the award-winning Russian cellist Alexander Buzlov.
