The Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra
The Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, under its distinguished conductor Riccardo Chailly, is one of the world’s very greatest orchestras. They visit Birmingham riding high on the critical accolades from recent performances in London, Paris and Vienna. Acclaimed cellist Lynn Harrell is the soloist in Shostakovich’s Second Cello Concerto, and the centrepiece of the evening is Rachmaninov’s heart-felt Second Symphony, an outpouring of passionate emotion into an inexhaustible stream of gorgeous melody.
