Three cello concertos in one concert! MfG’s CELLISSIMO Concerto Gala, a legacy event from our Galway 2020 programme, presents the RTÉ Concert Orchestra conducted by David Brophy in concert with three international cello soloists, performing three very different concertos.

MfG has co-commissioned two new cello concertos with the Cello Biennale Amsterdam. The first, Julia Wolfe’s Wind in my Hair, received its premiere at the CBA 2018 and we are proud to present its second performance as part of CELLISSIMO. Gerald Barry’s piece receives its world premiere at this concert and will have a second performance at the CBA in the future. Elgar’s cello concerto, a favourite in the repertoire, finishes off this remarkable concert.

 

This concert is sponsored by KPMG
