Marquee TV: Canellakis conducts Brahms



  • Karina Canellakis conductor
  • Pablo Ferrández cello

Do not go gentle into that good night: Brahms’s last symphony begins softly, but as he approaches the end of a lifetime’s struggle, he strides fearlessly into the raging storm.

Shostakovich’s First Cello Concerto, meanwhile, is a questioning voice from an age of tyranny: tense, urgent and utterly uncompromising, it’s one of 20th-century music’s ultimate thrillers. With a soloist as committed as Pablo Ferrández, this is edge-of-the-seat stuff: just as you’d expect when LPO Principal Guest Conductor Karina Canellakis tackles music that asks big questions, and offers honest answers.

Please note: Pablo Ferrández’s performance of Shostakovich’s First Cello Concerto will be available to stream on Marquee TV until 22 April 2024 (30 days from the release date). After 22 April, a recording of Mussorgky’s Dawn on the Moscow River (orch. Shostakovich) will be offered in its place.
