About this Performance
Composed in the wake of WWI’s shocking horror, Edward Elgar’s Cello Concerto reflects a new seriousness and darkened profundity in his music. Our soloist, Camille Thomas—whose playing Gramophone describes as “unfailingly exquisite in its tonal sheen and imaginative detail”—puts her spin on this cello masterwork. In his subscription series debut, the LA Phil’s dynamic Associate Conductor, Paolo Bortolameolli, takes on the intense and unrestrained emotions of the last symphony Tchaikovsky completed before his death.
