About Edinburgh International Festival: Baltimore Symphony Orchestra 1
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
THIBAUDET PERFORMS GERSHWIN
Baltimore Symphony Orchestra
Marin Alsop Conductor
Jean-Yves Thibaudet Piano
Stravinsky The Firebird Suite (1919)
Gershwin Piano Concerto
Schumann Symphony No 2
Driven, demanding, brilliantly energetic, US conductor Marin Alsop creates performances that blaze with conviction. She is also famously a protégée of the great composer, conductor and pianist Leonard Bernstein.
As part of the International Festival’s centenary celebrations of Bernstein’s larger-than-life genius, Alsop brings together three pieces closely associated with the great man.
Witty, flamboyant French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet is the soloist in the riffs and romps of Gershwin’s breezy Piano Concerto. Stravinsky’s The Firebird is a sumptuous fairytale of glittering colour and tremendous power. The concert closes with the restless vigour of Schumann’s profoundly searching Symphony No 2.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Edinburgh International Festival: Baltimore Symphony Orchestra 1 are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
