The BSO is delighted to finally return to the Great Hall with Chief Conductor Kirill Karabits.

A charming collection, the suite is lifted from music Bizet composed for Daudet’s play The Girl from Arles – a tragic story about unrequited love.

Ravel’s G Major Concerto sparkles with energy and a sense of spontaneity, drawing upon Basque and Spanish melodies, jazz riffs and even his childhood fascination with mechanical toys.

An early work by Prokofiev, his orchestral “sketch” paints a vivid picture.

Mussorgsky’s musical wander through a fictitious gallery of works by his friend Victor Hartmann is a beautifully curated series of miniatures, some intimate, others grotesque, but all imbued with vivid orchestral colour by Ravel’s genius for scoring.
