Rimsky-Korsakov, Shostakovich & Lutosławski

Rimsky-Korsakov Scheherazade

Lutosławski Little Suite for Orchestra
Shostakovich Concerto No.1 for Piano, Trumpet and Strings
Rimsky-Korsakov Scheherazade

A heady evening awaits, rich with storytelling, comedy and drama. We open with Lutosławski’s Little Suite, with its driving energy inspired by Polish folk songs, and close the concert with a virtuosic violin taking the narrator’s role in Rimsky-Korsakov’s series of hedonistic musical adventures, Scheherazade. A characterful duo is required to give life to all the humour of Shostakovich’s Concerto No.1 for Piano, Trumpet and Strings – the one and only Barry Douglas is joined by trumpet player Niall Keatley for this performance.
