“I am just an ordinary Czech musician” said Antonín Dvořák: but great artists see whole worlds in everyday things, and the birdsong, horncalls and tender memories that he poured into his Cello Concerto only heighten its power. Sibelius, too, begins with rural simplicity: just a few chords and a playful tune. But his mighty Second Symphony swells, gathers and broadens into a musical floodtide that sweeps all before it. The young British conductor Alpesh Chauhan never stints on drama; add the “overwhelming charisma” of cellist Pablo Ferrández and we can expect emotions on the grandest possible scale, launched on their way by the rollicking dance rhythms of Masquerade – Anna Clyne’s riotous evocation of a medieval carnival.
