Lukas Geniušas piano
Royal Northern Sinfonia

Chopin Piano Concerto No.1 in E minor
Interval
Bacewicz Concerto for String Orchestra
Schubert Symphony No.3 in D major

Chopin was a dreamer – but he was a revolutionary too, and one writer described his music as “cannons hidden in flowers”. One thing’s for sure, though: our piano soloist Lukas Geniušas won’t stint on either poetry or power. Guest conductor Marta Gardolinska conducts the teenage Schubert’s joyous Third Symphony, and shares a discovery from her native Poland – the brilliant, supercharged Concerto by Grazyna Bacewicz.
