AST welcomes back Benjamin Pope
The Academy of St Thomas welcomes back two of its favourite performers: cellist Alexander Baillie and conductor Benjamin Pope.
International soloist Alexander Baillie will perform Dvorak’s magnificent Cello Concerto in B minor. Once described as “Britain’s best-kept secret”, he is one of the finest cellists of his generation and was inspired by the late Jacqueline du Pré.
The concert will finish with Brahms’ Second Symphony – with its mellow opening leading to a joyful conclusion.
Glinka Overture – Ruslan and Ludmila
Dvorak – Cello Concerto in B minor
