Saint Saens Organ Symphony.


  • Ravel Mother Goose Suite16′
  • Prokofiev Piano Concerto No. 328′
  • Saint-Saëns Symphony No. 3 (Organ)35′

The orchestra thunders and roars, everyone’s silent, and then with one mighty chord, the Symphony Hall organ blows the roof off. However well you know Saint-Saëns’s Organ Symphony, experiencing it live in concert never gets any less exciting. How to top that? Well, the chance to hear the great Boris Giltburg in Prokofiev’s high-octane Third Piano Concerto might well come close – with Ravel’s lovely Mother Goose Suite as a playful upbeat.

CBSO+ 6.15pm: Conductor Harish Shankar introduces this evening's programme in conversation with CBSO Chief Executive Stephen Maddock OBE.
