BBC Proms – Elgar Cello Concerto (2018)

BBC Proms 2018 Elgar Cello Concerto

Tom Service presents a performance of Elgar’s much-loved Cello Concerto, composed in the wake of the First World War, with French cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras as soloist. The Prom begins with Edward Gardner conducting the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus in a performance of the choral miniature For A Soldier’s Funeral by French composer Lili Boulanger. The final piece is Vaughan Williams’s cantata Dona Nobis Pacem, a beautiful but heart-breaking exploration of the violence of war, as part of this season’s focus on the centenary of the end of the First World War.
