Anna Clyne: «rewind« (c.7 mins)
Esa-Pekka Salonen: Piano Concerto (c.33 mins)
Stravinsky: Petrushka (c.35 mins)
Yeol Eum Son: piano
Joana Carneiro: conductor
Brimming with Russian folk tunes, Stravinsky’s 1911 ballet tells the story of the lovestruck puppet Petrushka through a brilliant use of orchestral colour and infectious rhythm. Over a century later, its sense of mischief and pathos never seems to dim. Joana Carneiro conducts, opening with Anna Clyne’s «rewind« which mimics ‘a video tape rapidly scrolling backwards’ to astonishing effect, and the Piano Concerto by the Finnish conductor/composer Esa-Pekka Salonen. It fuses French Baroque, science fiction, birdsong, jazz, and the great Romantic concertos into something unforgettable, so fasten your seatbelts as acclaimed pianist Yeol Eum Son takes us on an epic, breathtaking ride.
