Weber Symphony No.2 in C
Dvořák (arr. G Morton) Cello Concerto
Andrew Manze conductor
Sheku Kanneh-Mason cello
Needing no introduction to our audience, cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason (who memorably performed at the royal wedding of Meghan and Prince Harry) brings us Dvořák’s nostalgic cello concerto. Homesick in America and hearing that his wife’s sister - and also his first love - was seriously ill, Dvořák poured his heart and soul into a new piece for the cello. Full of personal touches and meanings he created one of the most beloved of all concertos. In contrast, to open, Carl Maria von Weber delivers a delicious classical symphonic bonbon.
Please note the capacity is very limited (c. 330 seats total) and seating will be done on a socially distanced (2 metre) basis. To book single tickets please call the Box Office on 0151 709 3789.
