Poulenc: The Labenque Sisters, City Of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO)
Katia and Marielle Labèque: the ultimate sister act! They’re a byword for gallic charm, musical wit, and that irresistible, sparkling je ne sais quoi. And tonight’s concert lets them loose on some of the most delightful music ever written for two pianos and orchestra: Mozart’s youthful romp, and Poulenc’s champagne-cocktail of a double concerto.
Conductor Nicholas McGegan accompanies with a glint in his eye. Fifty years after the composer’s death, he treats us to another mouthwatering Poulenc rarity, plus a Mozart symphony that positively glows with warmth.
Poulenc Suite Française
Mozart Concerto in E flat for Two Pianos, K365
Poulenc Concerto for Two Pianos
Mozart Symphony No 39
Founded in 1920, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra has always had an illustrious career. In fact, the first concert was conducted by Sir Edward Elgar. The orchestra has grown into a 90-piece ensemble with a worldwide reputation.
