“I am the new Bacchus, pressing out glorious wine for the human spirit!” Ludwig van Beethoven wasn’t known for his modesty – but until you’ve heard his Seventh Symphony in full, heart-pounding flight, you’ve never known just how intoxicating music can be. Kazuki Yamada will go all-out: a high-octane contrast to Elgar’s hugely popular Cello Concerto, performed with poetry by the wonderful Dutch cellist Pieter Wispelwey.
