Music and Silence

Part of Classical Season 2018/19

What if silence had a sound? That’s how Mahler begins his First Symphony; with a sound so still and deep that you feel it rather than hear it.

And gradually – from bird calls and folk songs, daydreams and trumpet calls – he creates a wondrous new musical world.

By turns playful and tragic, epic and intimate, it’s become one of the best-loved of 19th-century symphonies, just as Elgar’s autumnal Cello Concerto has come to embody the soul of a nation.

With conductor Edward Gardner making a welcome return, and the superb Kian Soltani on cello, you’ll hear new poetry in even the most familiar music.
