Russian Concertos and French Tone Poems

Maison symphonique From April 20 To 21, 2022

Constructed as an arch, this concert is framed by two early 20th-century French works that bear deeply evocative imagery: Dukas’ Orientalist enchantment and Debussy’s aquatic mirages. At its centre, pianist Daniil Trifonov performs two Russian concertos: one by Schnittke offering a remarkable play of textures and another by Prokofiev, unfurling with characteristic shifting atmospheres.  Here is a richly coloured musical journey of contrasts and metamorphoses, conducted by Rafael Payare.

Dukas, La péri (The Fairy, 19 min.)
Schnittke, Concerto for Piano and String Orchestra (26 min.) 

Prokofiev, Piano Concerto no. 1 in D-flat major, op. 10 (16 min.) 
Debussy, La mer (23 min.)
