House Programme

 Leaflet

Relish the dazzling opulence of a 19th century Viennese ballroom as seen through the musical eyes of Ravel and explore the wonders of a modern symphony orchestra as presented by one of the leading Polish composers of our time, Witold Lutoslawski. Between these two magnificent scores Canadian pianist Marc-André Hamelin takes centre-stage in two mighty late-Romantic showpieces for piano and orchestra, the sumptuous Symphonic Variations by César Franck, a man who turned his back on a glittering career as a concert pianist to provide posterity with some unforgettable musical masterpieces, and the only work for piano and orchestra by the legendary opera composer and conductor, Richard Strauss.
