Lutoslawski 4th Symphony (1992)
This was Lutoslawski’s last orchestral work and shows him at the height of his powers, blending the unique aleatoric techniques he honed over a lifetime with a breath-taking palette of sounds and textures, from the ambient to the dynamic and rhythmic, full of energy and life.
Debussy 'La Mer' (1905)
Debussy conceived this piece as three symphonic sketches: from dawn to noon on the sea, play of the waves and dialogue of the wind and the sea. It has been described as a “sonorous becoming….a developmental process in which the very notions of exposition and development co-exist in an uninterrupted burst”. 25 minutes of pure bliss as we are transported to the middle of the ocean.
Schumann Cello concerto in A Minor, op. 129 (1850) with soloist Jayden Lamcellari
The concerto was written in just two weeks, in October 1850. It is unified in material and character, with the three movements intended to be performed without a break. Its emotional scope is wide, however, moving from the deeply meditative to the agitated, leading to the brilliant, affirmative conclusion.
Jayden Lamcellari is a young 16-year-old Irish cellist studying with Bozidar Vukotic at the Royal Academy of Music. He is currently the recipient of the Elton John scholarship awarded by Director Howard Ionascu.
Jayden made his debut as a soloist at the Musikverein Concert Hall in Vienna in March 2018. He played at the Carnegie Hall with the New York Concerti Sinfonietta in June 2018 and has been invited to perform again in New York at the Lincoln Centre.
Jayden has won 3 international competitions: the Grand Prize Virtuoso competition, the New England international competition and the New York Concerti Sinfonietta International Competition. He has also won most major competitions in Ireland. Jayden has performed on Ireland’s Late Late Show and has on for the President of Ireland.
Jayden enjoys playing chamber music with his quartet and loves playing with the Academy Symphony Orchestra.
