THIS EVENT TOOK PLACE IN 2010 Charlotte Daniel, conductors Jonathan Tilbrook Jonathan Pether, cello BRAHMS Academic Festival Overture SHOSTAKOVICH Cello Concerto No.1 SCHUMANN Symphony No.3 in E flat (Rhenish) The final orchestral concert of the year begins in a triumphant mood with Brahms’s Academic Festival Overture which incorporates student songs in a rousing celebration written for Breslau University. Final-year music student Jonathan Pether performs Shostakovich’s First Cello Concerto, one of the great works of the cello repertoire written for Mstislav Rostropovich in 1959. Schumann’s uplifting final symphony was inspired by the spirit of the Rhineland although it was his publisher Simrock that appended the title ‘Rhenish’ to the work. The second movement is in the style of a peasant ländler while the ceremonial solemnity of the trombones at the beginning of the fourth movement was said, by Schumann, to have been inspired by the sight of the magnificent Cologne Cathedral. The concert finishes at approximately 9.10pm
