Elgar's Cello Concerto Plus Mahler's First Symphony.

The beginning of Mahler’s first symphony sounds like the beginning of time itself – primordial, still and expectant. From this ethereal opening, Mahler’s awe-inspiring symphony traverses a musical journey both epic and intimate,  from bird calls and daydreams to twisted folk-songs and  on to a blazingly exultant conclusion.

Elgar’s cello concerto has come to embody a nation’s lament for a world lost to the Great War, and is his poignant and moving musical response to its horrors and devastation.

With the fearless cellist Daniel Müller-Schott and exciting conductor Elim Chan both making their WASO debuts, you’ll discover sublime new poetry in these enduring and popular masterworks.
