Piano Boris Giltburg
Ravel La Valse
Prokofiev Piano Concerto No. 3 in C
Alexander Shelley takes up the baton for the BSO as they show off Prokofiev’s cheerful and energetic Piano Concerto, alongside a soloist whose interpretations of the composer’s War Sonatas “eclipse all others on record” (Gramophone Magazine). On either side, Ravel’s ‘choreographic poem’ sets off proceedings with dancing vigour and Rimsky-Korsakov tells stories of fairytale wonders in his piece based on Arabian Nights.
