Classical Season 2019/20 | RNS Presents

Orchestre National de Lille

Alexandre Bloch conductor
Eric Lu piano
Orchestre National de Lille

Debussy Ibéria
Beethoven Piano Concerto No.4
Ravel Ma mère l’Oye (Mother Goose Suite)
Debussy La mer

‘I have slandered the sea…Today it is beautiful enough to defy all comparisons…’ Debussy was being a bit hard on himself: La mer is one of the most gorgeous seascapes ever painted by an orchestra, just as you’d expect from the composer whose Ibéria can practically make you smell the orange blossom of Spain. Under its inspirational young Music Director Alexandre Bloch, the Orchestre National de Lille brings a programme of French music at its most sumptuously colourful, as well as a chance to hear 2018 Leeds Piano Competition winner Eric Lu in Beethoven’s most poetic – and personal – concerto.
