SUK
Scherzo Fantastique, Op. 25

ELGAR
Cello Concerto in E minor, Op. 85

GLAZUNOV
Symphony No. 5 in B-flat major, Op. 55

Acclaimed Singapore-born conductor Darrell Ang returns with a night of orchestral colour and emotional fire. The flights of fancy in Suk’s Scherzo Fantastique and the post-Tchaikovskian riches of Glazunov’s Fifth Symphony contrastingly frame the soul-crushing magnificence of Elgar’s Cello Concerto, helmed by esteemed cellist Steven Isserlis.

“I do not bow to anyone, except to my own conscience and to our noble Lady Music.” – JOSEF SUK
