The Brigantes’ New World
The Brigantes presents Dvorak’s last and best-known Symphony No. 9, ‘from the New World’, side-by-side with the dark and emotional Cello Concerto of Edward Elgar featuring soloist Pepijn Meeuws. Opening the concert is a hidden gem of an overture by the conductor Sir Malcolm Sargent. His early ‘An Impression on a Windy Day’ is brimming with youthful ideas and influences and a with an ‘ear-worm’ tune to vie with the slow movement from the Dvorak!
