Mahler, Bruckner, Wagner … they all course through the veins of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra – most of all, those of its cellists. Very much in keeping with the theme ‘The Cello Takes Over’! Led by principal cellist Gregor Horsch, the RCO’s cellists will be playing gems from the orchestra’s repertoire arranged for twelve cellos by Adrian Williams, Mladen Miloradovic and Marijn van Prooijen.
What will ‘Adagietto’ from Mahler’s Symphony No. 5 sound like? More like Mahler’s first languishing love letter to Alma or more like the pre-eminent adagio it’s become over the years?
And how about the ‘Prelude’ to Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde on twelve cellos? Heavenly? Of course, no programme would be complete without Rossini’s William Tell Overture. And Nicolas Altstaedt rounds off this spectacle with Piazzolla’s Grand Tango accompanied by twelve cellists.
The new arrangements by Adrian Williams, Marijn van Prooijen and Mladen Miloradovic have been made possible by the Christiaan Vlek Fonds.
