Barry Wordsworth conductor

Natasha Paremski piano

 

Sibelius Karelia Suite

Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No. 1

Interval

Tchaikovsky Swan Lake Concert Suite

With her consistently striking and dynamic performances, Natasha Paremski has been compared to no less a pianist than the great Martha Argerich. Tonight Paremski performs Rachmaninov’s First Concerto, a work bursting with youthful vigour, soul-searching melodies and taxing virtuosity. First comes Sibelius’s patriotic tribute to the Finnish region of Karelia. This immensely tuneful and stirring piece was inspired by episodes in the region’s ancient history and ends in a musical ‘call to arms’. With his three great ballet scores, Tchaikovsky simply rewrote the history of dance theatre. In the second half we hear music from Swan Lake. With its yearning Swan theme, this is music of incomparable grace and beauty that is beloved of audiences all over the world.
