Ravel effortlessly blends together raucous jazz and heartbreaking tenderness in his quicksilver Piano Concerto – and Edinburgh-based international piano virtuoso Steven Osborne is just the musician to convey the piece’s exquisite wit and sparkle.
Elsewhere in conductor Andrew Manze’s concert of poetry and playfulness, Ravel offers a touching tribute to an imagined Spanish princess, Honegger celebrates the beauty of the summertime Alps, and Haydn unleashes sonic glories in the last and most exuberant of his ‘Paris’ symphonies.
Honegger: Concerto in G
Ravel: Pavane pour une infante défunte
Haydn: Symphony No 87
Andrew Manze: Conductor
Steven Osborne: Piano
Estimated duration: 80mins (incl. 20min interval)
