Bacewicz Overture for Orchestra
Saint-Saëns Piano Concerto No5
Lutosławski Symphony No3
Thomas Søndergård Conductor
Simon Trpčeski Piano
Rat, ta-ta-ta tat, rat-ta-ta tat-tat… come on, you’re humming it already! Ravel composed Boléro in 1928 and nearly a century later it’s still driving us all crazy. It’ll make a hot-blooded climax to a multicoloured concert, which opens with Bacewicz’s punchy overture and sparkles on through Saint Saëns’ musical postcard from Egypt and Lutosławski’s shimmering Third Symphony. Thomas Søndergård conducts while Simon Trpčeski plays the piano: and believe us, dazzling is an understatement.
