Tickets "at the door" - until sold out
  1. Suite, from Ma mère l’oye, 'Mother Goose' - Maurice Ravel
  2. Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No 1 in F sharp minor Op 1 - Sergey Rachmaninov
  3. Petrushka (1911) - Igor Stravinsky

Ravel’s delicate and touching evocation of fairy-tales opens this concert. Rachmaninov’s concerto is an attractive, rhapsodic work, full of youthful vigour, which shows why Tchaikovsky regarded him so highly. The composer revised and improved it in later life without sacrificing its essential freshness. Stravinsky’s imaginative recreation of an old Russian Easter Fair is the backdrop for the tale of the puppet Petrushka, who falls in love with the beautiful Ballerina, with disastrous consequences.
