Walton Cello Concerto
Scriabin Rêverie
Prokofiev Symphony no. 7 in C sharp

minor op. 131
_____________________________________________________________
Walton and Prokofiev’s works come from the 1950s and are highly lyrical and somewhat nostalgic in tone. The concerto was Walton’s first major work to be written on Ischia and is full of Italian warmth. Leeds-born Zachary Owen recently graduated from the RNCM and will continue his studies at the Guildhall School of Music in London. Prokofiev’s last major work is often reminiscent of his ballet music. The programme is completed by Nicola LeFanu’s Threnody in celebration of her 70th birthday and the short, evocative tone poem by Scriabin.
