  1. Overture, from Egmont Op 84 - Ludwig van Beethoven
  2. Concerto for cello and orchestra in E minor Op 85 - Sir Edward Elgar
  3. Symphony No 1 in D, 'Titan' - Gustav Mahler

What if silence had a sound? That’s how Mahler begins his First Symphony; with a sound so still and deep that you feel it rather than hear it. And gradually – from bird calls and folksongs, daydreams and trumpet calls – he creates a wondrous new musical world. By turns playful and tragic, epic and intimate, it’s become one of the best-loved of 19th-century symphonies, just as Elgar’s autumnal Cello Concerto has come to embody the soul of a nation. With conductor Edward Gardner making a welcome return, and the superb Kian Soltani on cello, you’ll hear new poetry in even the most familiar music.
