TCHAIKOVSKY Serenade for Strings
SAINT-SAĖNS Cello Concerto No. 2
DVORĮK Symphony No. 8
MICHAEL SEAL conductor
JAMIE WALTON cello
After the success in London of his magnificent Seventh Symphony, Dvorįks English hosts persuaded him to write another. In his Eighth, the composer created a piece that he believed was different from the other symphonies, with individual thoughts worked out in a new way. What followed was a rich and unbridled flow of inspiring melody without the insistent and thrusting debate of the Seventh but certainly lacking none of its charm.
A blend of the proud and the playful characterises Camille Saint-Saėnss Second Cello Concerto, a challenging piece for any cellist but one that is sure to exude effortless grace in the hands of Jamie Walton.
