BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, Louis Lortie
A programme of works comprising:
Ravel: Piano Concerto in G
Stravinsky: The Rite of Spring
100 years ago in Paris, Igor Stravinsky blew music to pieces and started a riot. 'The Rite of Spring' was violent, primal and thrillingly raw. No-one had ever heard anything like it; one century on, we're still reeling from the aftershock. Join Juanjo Mena and the orchestra for the finale of this Stravinsky ballet celebration; a centenary performance of 'The Rite'.
Louis Lortie also brings all his Gallic panache to Ravel's gleaming art-deco concerto, and the evening opens in a blaze of joie de vivre, with the massed trumpets and sheer energy of Janácek's roof-raising Sinfonietta.
