Chopin & Bartók with Benjamin GrosvenorSouthbank Centre, Royal Festival Hall, SE1 8XX, [Venue Details]
The Philharmonia Orchestra contrasts Chopin’s elegant and expansive concerto with the vivid colours of music by Anna Clyne and Bartók.
Anna Clyne’s inspiration for This Midnight Hour came from two poems – Baudelaire’s describes a heady evening where ‘sounds and perfumes swirl in the evening air’, and Jiménez’s pictures Music as a woman running through the night.
It’s an apt companion to Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra – every member of the Philharmonia has their moment in the spotlight in this work fizzing with imagination.
