Cello: Akito Goto (WMSO Young Musician 2012)
Our gala concert showcases a much-loved concerto and a rarely-performed orchestral extravaganza. But what links Dvořák's lyrical cello concerto and its private grief for a sister-in-law with An Alpine Symphony's epic concept and form? The answer is a love of homeland: the folk melody of Dvořák and the depiction of a majestic and beautiful mountain landscape by Strauss both rely on their composers' love for and evocation of place; a reminder of how significant places are in our lives.
