ELGAR CELLO CONCERTO
A Jacobs Masterworks Concert

Case Scaglione, conductor
Andrei Ioniţă, cello

WAGNER: Overture to Tannhäuser
ELGAR: Concerto in E minor, Op. 85
KODÁLY: Concerto for Orchestra
ENESCO: Rumanian Rhapsody No. 1 in A Major, Op. 11

Edward Elgar’s final significant composition is at the heart of this program, a cornucopia of orchestral colors and national textures. Rising young Romanian cellist Andrei Ioniţă performs Elgar’s by turns confident and darkly introspective masterpiece, a reflection of the composer’s extreme ambivalence about an England forever altered by war. The program is rounded out by a neglected but brilliant French impressionist ballet score by Claude Debussy, an orchestral concerto of Hungarian themes by Zoltán Kodály and a blazing rhapsody of Romanian music by George Enesco.

The San Diego Union-Tribune has published a glowing review of this concert!

Note: program opener has changed from previously published materials. Also, conductor Cristian Măcelaru, previously announced for this program, has withdrawn.
