Joining the Orchestra is one of the UK’s most prolific concert pianists, the multiple award winning Stephen Hough – globally renowned for his outstanding interpretations of the piano repertoire and widely regarded as one of the most important and distinctive pianists of his generation. Stephen will perform Saint-Saëns’ Fifth (and final) Piano Concerto, ‘The Egyptian’ – a beguiling piece, filled with exotic sounds and vibrant rhythms.
The concert gets off to an upbeat start with music from another of the great French composers, Berlioz, with his Le Corsaire Overture, whilst Scriabin’s rarely performed, yet utterly enthralling Second Symphony closes the concert. This intense and passionate work takes audiences on a musical journey of rousing highs and devastating lows, and of which Vasily Petrenko’s interpretations have been critically acclaimed.
