The heartfelt Cello Concerto was English composer Sir Edward Elgar’s final great work. He poured into it all the passionate sorrow he felt at World War I’s destruction of Europe’s people and their ideals. With Symphony No. 7, Czech master Antonín Dvorák composed one of his most ambitious and magnificent works.

Come for: Peter Oundjian launches his tenth TSO season with a banquet of rich and powerfully emotional music. It includes the first of several pieces performed in the fall to honour the centenary of the revered English composer, Benjamin Britten.
