    Elgar, Dvorák, Vaughan Williams | BBC National Orchestra of Wales
    BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Jamie Walton, Rory Macdonald
    University of Worcester Arena Worcester WR2 5JN
    United Kingdom

    The University of Worcester, in association with the Autumn in Malvern Festival, is delighted to present a programme particularly fitting for the historic city of Worcester - Sir Edward Elgar's birthplace and home for so many years. The Cello Concerto is one of his most loved works, while the Elegy is particularly fitting in this anniversary year of the beginning of the First World War. The concert ends with the uplifting contrast of Dvorák's Symphony No 8.

    For this very special evening, the BBC National Orchestra of Wales is delighted to work again with conductor Rory Macdonald, described by International Record Review as 'one of the most exciting young British conductors'. His busy recording and concert schedule takes him around the world, conducting major orchestras in Europe, America, Australia and New Zealand.

    Jamie Walton has performed as soloist with many national orchestras, including the London Philharmonic and Philharmonia Orchestras, making his debut with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra earlier this year. He has been described by the Washington Post as a major cello talent, known for his rich, disciplined tone and clean interpretations.

    The University Arena is a new venue for major concerts in Worcester.

    International Musicians Seminar Prussia Cove - chamber music in Cornwall
    St Michael's Mount Marazion

    The International Musicians Seminar, Prussia Cove, was founded in 1972 by Sandor Vegh, who believed that the remote location on the Atlantic coast in Cornwall had an energy that could inspire and reinvigorate musicians. Under the Artistic Director, Steven Isserlis, IMS continues to flourish and grow.

    During the autumn Open Chamber Music Seminar, promising students are invited to participate and make ensembles with the professors, providing combinations of youth and experience.
