RNS: Kobekina Plays Schumann

Part of Sage Classics 2022/23

Part of Dine With Us


Dinis Sousa conductor
Anastasia Kobekina cello
Royal Northern Sinfonia

Kaija Saariaho Nymphea Reflection
Robert Schumann Cello Concerto
Ludwig Van Beethoven Symphony No. 8

Beethoven knew both laughter and turmoil and his Eighth Symphony includes some of the most explosive, outrageous and romantic music he ever wrote. We pair it with Saariaho’s sounds of shimmering colour and beauty and the soaring melodies of Schumann’s only cello concerto – performed by Anastasia Kobekina, a cellist of “overwhelming sincerity” (The Strad).
