Forest Philharmonic plays Coleridge-Taylor, Dvorak and Schumann
DVORAK Cello Concerto,
SCHUMANN Symphony No. 3 (Rhenish)
Conductor: Mark Shanahan
Cello: Gemma Rosefield
This concert starts with two great pieces from the 1890s, one very rarely heard despite its brilliance, the Ballade in A minor by pioneer black British composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, and the other being the ever-popular and nostalgic Cello Concerto by Dvorak, featuring Forest Philharmonic favourite Gemma Rosefield. We end with Robert Schumann’s mature masterwork Symphony No. 3 (Rhenish), a symphony evoking the splendour of Köln and the Rhine.
