BBC Notes: Detailed programme notes, timed with the music, giving you insights into what you are hearing and seeing on stage as it happens

Anja Bihlmaier conductor | Leonard Elschenbroich cello

Shostakovich No.9 in E flat major
Dvořák Cello Concerto in B minor

Antonin Dvořák’s only Cello Concerto is an intensely personal work, inspired in part by the fading health of his first love – and cellist Leonard Elschenbroich, a former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist, will bring his trademark flair to this towering tour de force. Also tonight, conductor Anja Bihlmaier takes us to Russia: first with a witty set of sports-inspired miniatures by Galina Ustvolskaya, a pupil of Shostakovich when the Second World War began; and then with Shostakovich’s own brilliantly irreverent Ninth Symphony, written in 1945 but far from a victory march.
