Various Works (c.45 mins)
Giovanni Sollima: L.B. Files
Nielsen: Symphony No.5 (c.37 mins)
Abel Selaocoe: cello
Thomas Dausgaard: conductor
There is no performer in the world right now quite like the cellist Abel Selaocoe. His extraordinary performances fuse African and European music and blend traditional playing styles with improvisation, singing and body percussion. He’s the centre of this concert’s first half, collaborating with the orchestra and Thomas Dausgaard to explore a free-flowing selection of music which includes Abel’s own compositions and cello virtuoso Giovanni Sollima’s homage to Boccherini, the L.B. Files. After the interval our Nielsen cycle continues with the grippingly powerful Fifth Symphony, a work that’s among the great anti-war testaments of the 20th century. Join us for what’s bound to be an unforgettable afternoon.
