Yan Pascal Tortelier conductor | Leonard Elschenbroich cello

Visions and journeys: from a scented garden high above the Mediterranean, Walton imagined a cello concerto that blossoms with song; Albert Roussel took the elegance of the French baroque, and exploded it to release a burst of energy and waves of glittering sound; Anthony Payne takes a sea voyage to the Scilly Isles (tonight’s performance is an 80th birthday gift to this last of the British romantics); and Georges Bizet conjures up the sunlight, fragrance and passion of Spain, in what’s surely got to be the world’s favourite opera.

Sexy melodies and ravishing colours: Yan Pascal Tortelier will be in his element, joined by rising star Leonard Elschenbroich, and reunited with the BBC Philharmonic.
