Dukas The Sorcerer’s Apprentice
Saint-Saëns Cello Concerto No.1
Rachmaninov Symphonic Dances

Elim Chan conductor
Sheku Kanneh-Mason cello

Post Concert Question Time (Thursday only) - starts 15 minutes after the concert ends (Music Room) with conductor Elim Chan and Young Artist in Residence and cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason.When cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason released his debut album, it shot straight into the charts – the pop charts. Then he played at the 2018 Royal Wedding and became an international star. And quite right too, because few cellists play with more beauty or joy than our Young Artist in Residence. Saint-Saëns’s First Cello Concerto is one of his personal favourites; conductor Elim Chan follows it with Rachmaninov’s exciting suite of three symphonic dances, and begins with a piece made famous in Disney’s Fantasia. Pure magic, from first note to last.
