ABOUT THIS CONCERT
Fasten your seatbelts and blast off to the stars when acclaimed conductor Gemma New leads Holst’s sonic, celestial showpiece, which vividly portrays each planet’s astrological persona, from menacing Mars to jolly Jupiter and beyond. Young cello star Camille Thomas is conquering the world stage at a staggering pace (Gramophone Magazine likened her warm, effortlessly lyrical sound to “drinking hot chocolate”) and Elgar’s poignant Cello Concerto is the perfect showcase for her talents. And, experience Alissa Firsova’s poetic reflection on love, Bride of the Wind.
