Mozart at Elder 2

Christopher Dragon - Conductor
Simon Cobcroft - Cello
Graham Abbott - Presenter

Ibert - Hommage à Mozart
Fauré - Pavane
Saint-Saëns - Cello Concerto No.1
Mozart - Symphony No.31 'Paris'

Jacques Ibert composed his Hommage à Mozart to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the great composer’s birth. Filled with good
cheer, and more than the occasional quote, this delightful work is replete with sparkling elegance.


At the ripe old age of 22, Mozart knew exactly how to dazzle Parisian music lovers. Right from its first performance, audiences have delighted in the ‘Paris’ Symphony’s irresistible combination of grandeur and grace.


Almost one hundred years later in the same city, Saint-Saens’s First Cello Concerto proved an instant success. The work’s three movements interlink into one musical expanse – held together by the uniquely lyrical power of the cello.
