Classical Season 2019/20 | RNS at Home
Montero plays Tchaikovsky
with Pre-Concert Talk at 6.30pm
Please note, due to unforeseen circumstances Gabriela Montero will not be appearing in this concert, and Frank Dupree will be taking her place.
Alexandre Bloch conductor
Frank Dupree piano
Royal Northern Sinfonia
Grieg Norwegian Dances
Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No.1
Stravinsky Symphony in C
The horns throw down the gauntlet: the piano strides forward to take the challenge. And with one of the greatest melodies in Russian music, Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto is on its way. Thrilling stuff – it’s no wonder that this is one of the best loved of all romantic masterpieces for piano and orchestra, and played today by the inimitable Gabriela Montero, it should be gripping. Guest conductor Alexandre Bloch sets the scene with the Nordic freshness of Grieg’s irresistibly tuneful Norwegian Dances, and crowns the concert with a bracingly original take on the symphony from the razor-sharp imagination of Igor Stravinsky.
