Kazuki Yamada


Love Dvořák's "New World" symphony? Then why not try something a little stronger? Dvořák's Seventh begins with a rumble of thunder, and ends in a shout of defiance; in between come summer storms, lilting dance tunes, and some of the sweetest, most heartfelt music in any great symphony. The CBSO's Principal Guest Conductor Kazuki Yamada never stints on emotion; and it's a perfectly-chosen complement to the UK premiere of the CBSO's latest centenary commission – Litanies, a major new cello concerto from our former Composer in Association Julian Anderson. It's Julian's very personal tribute to a friend who died too young, and with the phenomenal Alban Gerhardt as soloist, we think it's set to be an instant classic.
