Saint-Saën’s Piano Concerto No.5, Egyptian, is performed by Alexandre Kantorow, a pianist of ‘mesmerising talent’ (Moscow Times) who brings vitality and vigour to the iconic French composer’s final concerto for piano.
The concerto incorporates Asian and Middle-Eastern musical influences in a beautiful and vibrant expression of Romantic lyricism.
Berlioz’ Le Corsaire opens the evening with a miniature seascape portrait, bursting to life with a manic energy in the strings that soon give way to a serene contemplation of the coast of Nice.
