About the event
The refreshing melodies of Lutosławski’s Concerto for Orchestra are easy to love, and brought the composer fame in the West in the 1950s.
In part, the piece is inspired by Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra, which skilfully shows off the soloistic talents of each orchestral section and incorporates elements of Eastern European folk music.
Rachmaninov’s sweeping set of variations is a quasi-concerto that pairs piano soloist and orchestra. The eighteenth variation is particularly popular and has appeared in multiple film soundtracks including Groundhog Day. Tonight we perform with the celebrated Estonian pianist Mihkel Poll.
