Programme

  • Chopin  Piano Concerto No.2
  • Messiaen Un Sourire
  • Debussy La Mer

This imaginatively-devised concert gives a wonderful example of what Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla has to offer – from the classicism and wit with which she approaches her beloved Mozart to her lucid, emotionally charged way with 20th century music, in Messiaen’s exquisite but rarely played Un Sourire (A Smile).

Anchoring the programme are two romantic classics in which she’ll be able to pour out her heart – Chopin’s dreamy Second Piano Concerto, with Polish pianist Rafał Blechacz, and an early centenary tribute to Claude Debussy: the ravishing La Mer.
