Elgar – Cello Concerto in E minor, Op. 85
Rachel Mercer, cello
Brahms – Symphony No. 2 in D major, Op. 73

A grand finale with two symphonic masterpieces. Elgar’s Cello Concerto is one of the lushest and most romantic concerti in the repertoire. As well as being the Principal Cellist of the National Arts Centre Orchestra, Rachel Mercer is an accomplished soloist and chamber musician and she will bring the Elgar to life with her passionate playing. Brahms Symphony No. 2 is considered the most joyous and positive of all his symphonies and gives a clear and decisive opportunity for the orchestra to perform with great strength and musicality. A fitting finale to a tremendous season of music-making.
