Elgar’s Cello Concerto is an elegiac remembrance, a romantic contemplation about the meaning of life. Tchaikovsky’s 5th Symphony has continued to grow in popularity since its premiere, standing as one of the composer’s most loved large-scale creations.
World-renowned cellist Johannes Moser returns to the Philharmonic for what promises to be a memorable performance.
