  1. Fantasia on a theme by Thomas Tallis - Ralph Vaughan Williams
  2. Concerto for cello and orchestra in E minor Op 85 - Sir Edward Elgar
  3. Overture, from L'Italiana in Algeri, 'The Italian Girl in Algiers' - Gioachino Rossini
  4. Symphony No 4 in A, 'Italian' Op 90 - Felix Mendelssohn

This concert is a perfect marriage of English and Italian orchestral favourites. Fantasia on a theme by Thomas Tallis has been a staple of Classis FM’s Hall of Fame top three for many years. The rich variety of layers and textures in the work makes it a ravishing curtain-raiser for this afternoon concert.

Cellist Jamal Aliyev, who won the Sir Karl Jenkins Music Award in 2017, will be performing Elgar’s sublime cello concerto.
Mendelssohn’s buoyant and cheerful Symphony No 4, ‘Italian’ closes this concert with panache and flair; a charming expression of how Italy made him feel.
