Come and celebrate with us, as we mark the 25th anniversary of the opening of The Anvil with the first visit from one of the brightest new stars of the music world. Elgar’s Cello Concerto vies with Dvorak’s as the best ever written for the instrument, with the composer’s heartfelt lyricism to the fore. The drama of the opening movement is followed by a nimble scherzo, and a slow movement of elegiac beauty. The powerful finale is memorably interrupted by a haunting reminiscence of the slow movement before rushing to its close. Elgar’s variations are fond musical descriptions of close friends, varying from the serious ‘Nimrod’ (his publisher) to the romantic and delicate C.A.E. (his wife), concluding with an energetic and confident self-portrait.
