Sheku brings us one of his first performances of Elgar’s great Cello Concerto. Either side of his performance are a wonderfully sympathetic musical portrait of Shakespeare’s tragic King Lear, courtesy of his passionate 19th century French devotee Hector Berlioz, and Dvořák’s evergreen – and ever popular – New World Symphony. Truly, there’s something for everyone in this concert – definitely one not to be missed!
