ELGAR Cello Concerto
Written at the end of World War I, Elgar’s beautiful Cello Concerto was his last completed work and reflects his sadness over the loss of friends and countrymen. In its beautiful melodies and wistful, deeply English spirit, it sums up everything that makes Elgar such a mesmerizing and at times heartbreaking composer. Featuring Armenian cellist Narek Hakhnazaryan, winner of the Gold Medal at the 2011 Tchaikovsky International Competition in Moscow.
