Programme

  • Franck Le Chasseur maudit15′
  • Saint-Saëns Piano Concerto No. 5 (Egyptian)29′
  • Rachmaninov Symphonic Dances37′

A symphony in disguise? A musical autobiography? A fabulous dream ballet? However you choose to hear Rachmaninov’s Symphonic Dances, one thing’s for sure: they’re all Rachmaninov, glowing with colour, romance, and those long, ravishing tunes that the whole world loves. Add a dark fairy-tale from César Franck and Cédric Tiberghien’s inimitable way with French music, and this is a magical CBSO debut for one of today’s most talked-about young conductors.

CBSO+ 6.15pm: CBSO violinist Catherine Arlidge MBE discusses tonight’s programme with conductor Karina Canellakis, who is also a virtuoso violinist encouraged to pursue conducting by her mentor Sir Simon Rattle.
