Berlioz: Roman Carnival Overture
Elgar: Cello Concerto in E Minor
Jennifer Kloetzel, soloist
Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 2, “Little Russian”
Our season finale begins with pure joy as the irrepressible musical spirit of Berlioz bursts forth in his Roman Carnival Overture. Cellist Jennifer Kloetzel, noted for her elegant playing and vibrant tone, performs Elgar’s deeply personal and expressive Cello Concerto, composed in the wake of the devastating First World War. Tchaikovsky’s buoyant Symphony No. 2, rooted in Russian folk song, brings our season to a rousing conclusion.
