Pre-concert talk hosted by John Florance at 2pm

The Bardi’s De Montfort Hall season finale sees three works showing different sides of one of England’s greatest composers, Sir Edward Elgar. The first half has the delightful Serenade for Strings contrasting strongly with the passionate and powerful Cello Concerto, with soloist Lydia Shelley. The mighty First Symphony brings the concert to a magnificent conclusion with one of Elgar’s most inspired themes.
