Nicholas Angelich and Yannick Nézet-Séguin - Program 1

Maison symphonique June 18, 2022

Soloist-in-residence Nicholas Angelich takes on Rachmaninoff’s Concerto for Piano No. 1, which features the Russian composer’s gift for melody and masterful piano composition, walking the line between virtuosity and the impossible. Angelich will be joined by conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin on piano to perform Ravel’s piano duet Ma mère l’Oye.

Long after he composed Funeral Song for his teacher Rimsky-Korsakov and subsequently lost the score, Stravinsky had forgotten the details of the piece. In his memoirs, he described it as a procession of instruments filing “past the tomb of the master in succession, each laying down its own melody as its wreath.” The work was rediscovered in 2015, and this performance will be its Montréal debut. The concert will be rounded out with Lili Boulanger’s D’un matin de printemps and Ravel’s La Valse, evoking grandeur and decadence in a lively ballet-cum-waltz.

STRAVINSKY, Funeral Song
Lili BOULANGER, D’un matin de printemps
RACHMANINOFF, Piano Concerto No. 1
