Pilgrimage of the Soul - Master Series 8

Richard Farnes - Conductor
Saleem Ashkar - Piano

Vaughan Williams - The Wasps: Overture
Mendelssohn - Piano Concerto No 1
Elgar - Symphony No 2

Due to the recent passing of our Principal Guest Conductor and Artistic Advisor, Sir Jeffrey Tate CBE, this program will now be conducted by Richard Farnes. 

 

"I do but hide under these notes, like embers, every spark of that which has consumed me." Edward Elgar

 

There is something endlessly mesmerising about a wood fire, and Edward Elgar’s Second Symphony entrances people in much the same way. It burns brightly, the music continually flaring up with fervour and passion, and yet you find yourself looking deeper and deeper within at the dark coals that lie beneath. Elgar poured his soul into this symphony, and its many layers of meaning make for a rich and rewarding listening journey.

 

Richard Farnes has charted this pilgrimage, and for its middle stage Saleem Ashkar joins the ASO for the first time in Mendelssohn’s fiery and inventive First Piano Concerto.

 

Our quest begins in the clear daylight of Ralph Vaughan Williams’ The Wasps. This is an overture bursting with unmistakeably ‘English’ melodies, evidence of the composer’s keen interest in folksong.
