Opening with Respighi’s simmering ‘Botticelli Pictures’ (1926), a gorgeous piece which literally paints pictures in music! Following this, the rather quirky ‘Tocatta e due Canzoni’ (1946) by Martinů, featuring an interesting, almost jazzy, rhythmic piano part with an American flavour. We’re then calmed by the music of Sibelius in the ‘Swan of Tuonela’(1895) – this rich dark tone poem is typical Sibelius, mixing the lush deep tones of the Cor Anglais (the Swan) with the lower strings. The concert ends with Stravinsky’s explosive ‘Firebird Suite’ (the 1919 version), an exciting conclusion to this very colourful concert.
