Mario Brunello, composer and cello
Mozart - From Don Giovanni - Ouverture
Fauré - Elegie for cello & orchestra
Haydn - Symfonie no 93
Saint-Saëns - Celloconcert no 1
Tsjaikovski - Suite no 4 'Mozartiana'
With his usual flair and vivacity, Mario Brunello knows exactly how to bring this sentiment to life in his rendition of Tchaikovsky’s ode to Mozart, the Mozartiana. Of course, this being a Haydn Chair Concert, the grandmaster himself will be present in the programme too with his first ‘London’ Symphony, in which Haydn quoted Mozart’s Don Giovanni in the fourth movement. But there is more: this concert also gives you the wonderful opportunity of hearing the Italian master cellist play the beloved First Cello Concerto by Saint-Saëns and the tranquil Elegie by his compatriot Fauré.
To keep waiting times down to an absolute minimum, this concert will make use of the 'wallet-less intermission' concept. Visitors are asked to pay for their intermission drink in advance when ordering their tickets: the perfect solution for enjoying your company and your drink as long as possible!
