BBC Philharmonic
Andrew Gourlay Conductor
Narek Hakhnazaryan Cello

Andrew Gourlay, also a trombonist and pianist by training, conducts today’s studio concert – opening with British composer Cooke and his Sixth Symphony.

The orchestra are joined by BBC New Generation Artist, Narek Hakhnazarya, for the poetry of Schumann's Cello Concerto, before this afternoon’s programme closes the way that it began – with the work of a British composer.

Elgar’s Dream Children, inspired by writing from Charles Lamb in 1822, leaps from the pages of an essay to the pages of a score and conveys both a wistful longing and nostalgia for lost youth.
