For the guest concert by our partner the Deutsche Radio Philharmonie Saarbrücken Kaiserslautern, conductor Karel Mark Chichon, a man familiar to the National Orchestra, presents a beautiful programme. The Venezuelan pianist Gabriela Montero is a soloist for Tchaikovsky’s romantic First Piano Concerto, one of the most popular works in piano literature. She then improvises to her own musical ideas, a practice that has become something of her trademark. After the interval there follows what are probably Edward Elgar’s two best known works. The Enigma variations present charming and sensitive melodies while the first march from Pomp and Circumstance became world famous as the hymn Land of Hope and Glory, the unofficial English national anthem.
