Conductor Rimma Sushanskaya celebrates her debut with the National Symphony Orchestra by presenting a hugely attractive programme featuring Ravel’s vibrant orchestration. Notable for its colour and ingenuity, Ravel’s arrangement of Mussorgsky’s Pictures at An Exhibition is a prodigious feat of instrumental imagination.
In La Valse nostalgic memories take a dark and unexpected turn, ‘a kind of apotheosis of the Viennese waltz, mingled with destiny’s fantastic whirl’.
Possessing flawless mastery and ‘beguiling silvery tone’ violinist Jack Liebeck performs Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto, combining technical brilliance with romantic lyricism.
