Guy Johnston cello
Philharmonia Orchestra
Anna Maria Helsing conductor

Beethoven Egmont Overture 9’
Howells Cello Concerto 23’
Elgar/Anthony Payne Symphony No 3 58’

Elgar’s last work, although incomplete at the time of his death in 1934, is an unforgettably thrilling symphony, completed by Anthony Payne. Although Elgar’s dying wish was that nobody should ‘tinker’ with his final sketches, his family decided that the piece was too important to be allowed to lie dormant. Howells’ deeply personal Cello Concerto was also left unfinished but Jonathan Clinch’s completion for tonight’s soloist Guy Johnston, has been enthusiastically received and brings some of Howells’ best orchestral music to the stage.

Supported by Mr and Mrs David Ball; Guy Johnston supported by Joanna Brickell
