Summary

Ryan Wigglesworth conducts Britten Sinfonia in a concert of musical homages. Arranging four pieces by Mozart in his Suite No. 4, Tchaikovsky pays homage to the composer he regarded as a ‘divinity’. Tchaikovsky himself was the inspiration for Stravinsky’s ballet The Fairy’s Kiss, shot through with Tchaikovsky’s melodies. Conductor Ryan Wigglesworth also features as both pianist – alongside Marc-André Hamelin in Mozart’s Concerto for two pianos – and composer, with the world premiere of his own Piano Concerto.

Please note the change of artist.
