Elgar |  Delius | Strauss

Truls Mørk is a singer on his instrument. The Norwegian cellist can be experienced as soloist in Edward Elgar’s famous cello concerto together with the Gürzenich Orchestra. The rhapsodic work tells of the faded beauty of the Romantic era and offers a deeply personal encounter with Truls Mørk as a superb soloist. In »Salome’s Dance«, the Gürzenich Orchestra and James Gaffigan invite you to an explosive dance with the »femme fatale de l'opéra«. Enchanting tonal splendour à la Wagner can be experienced in the tone poem “A Walk to the Paradise Garden” from the British composer Frederick Delius’s opera »A Village Romeo and Juliet«.
