Kodály’s childhood memories of a gypsy band and a book of Hungarian dance tunes were the key ingredients for his Dances of Galánta. Soulful woodwind solos make ways for lively dances that whirl faster and faster.
In between, enjoy Grieg’s much-loved Piano Concerto, full of power, poetry and drama – all well within reach of soloist Denis Kozhukhin.
His last appearance with the Philharmonia in 2017 ‘confirmed his place as one of the finest pianists of his generation’ (Classical Source).
