Vasily Petrenko leads the London Philharmonic Orchestra in a concert of music by Stravinsky, Rimsky-Korsakov and Elgar's Cello Concerto. read less In times of tragedy, composers have always told stories. Stravinsky turned from the carnage of the First World War to create The Song of the Nightingale: a strange, wondrously bejewelled cautionary tale of man and machine. Edward Elgar retreated to the South Downs to write his last great masterpiece - a haunted Cello Concerto wreathed in autumn woodsmoke. Andreas Brantelid finds the poetry in this most beloved of British classics. And in happier times, Stravinsky's old teacher Rimsky-Korsakov retold the Thousand and One Nights in music of dazzling colour and unforgettable melody. Performers London Philharmonic Orchestra Vasily Petrenko conductor Andreas Brantelid cello Repertoire Stravinsky: Le chant du rossignol (The Song of the Nightingale) Elgar: Cello Concerto Interval Rimsky-Korsakov: Scheherazade
