    Well, I'm giving it a go. Pleasant, and very well-performed. He does go on, though.

    Esa-Pekka Salonen conducts the first concert of his final season as the Philharmonia's Principal Conductor and Artistic Adviser. In a typically enticing programme, Salonen contrasts Ravel's refined depiction of innocent childhood and fairy tale with the darker, dreamlike world of Britten's Les illuminations. Britten's brilliant settings of Arthur Rimbaud's cryptic and sometimes obscure poetry are sung by American soprano Julia Bullock, who tonight makes her Royal Festival Hall debut, having already performed Les illuminations with Salonen in the US to great acclaim.

    Introduced live from the Royal Festival Hall by Ian Skelly as part of Southbank Centre’s Inside Out season.

    Ravel: Pavane pour une infante défunte
    Britten: Les illuminations
    Ravel: Mother Goose (complete ballet)

    Julia Bullock (soprano)
    Philharmonia Ochestra
    Esa-Pekka Salonen (conductor)

    8.45: The National Youth Orchestra presents a Mighty River of music at the Royal Festival Hall, London.

    Over lockdown, the young musicians of the NYO immersed themselves in the context and history of music by Black composers, and researched music by a wider range of compositional voices to share with others. Last week, a small group came together at the Festival Hall to play Mighty River by Errollyn Wallen, and a selection of music they have learnt and loved over lockdown. The programme includes:

    Amazing Grace, sung by Jermaine Jackman (arranged for 8 string players)
    Deep River (arranged for 8 string players)
    Jessie Montgomery: Starburst for string ensemble
    Samuel Coleridge-Taylor: Intermezzo (arranged for brass quartet)
    Mason Bynes: Hades (for double bass and piano)
    Adolphus Hailstork: Flute Set - first movement (solo flute)
    Florence Price: String Quartet in G major - second movement
    Errollyn Wallen: Mighty River, conducted by Kwamé Ryan.

    Concert recorded at the Royal Festival Hall on 24th October.

    Johannes Brahms: Piano Quartet No.1 in G minor, op.25, orchestrated by Arnold Schoenberg. Robert Craft, Philharmonia Orchestra

    Absolutely brilliant work. It's pure Brahms; it's pure Schoenberg.

    ^Ives for me as well...:



    Charles Ives: Symphony No.3, "The Camp Meeting". Michael Tilson Thomas, Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra

    Enjoying the music. I still don't really understand what Ives is all about except that this work does seem to have a kind of "outdoorsy" feel. Seems to be a good performance, though I haven't heard any other. You can tell Thomas really believes in this music.

    Krystian undoubtedly is one of the greatest pianists of our time. And when it comes to absolute sound clarity and brilliance the best, compared only to Arturo. In this video, together with Leonard, bringing to us the TRUE Brahms. Both the concertos are completely (RE)SOLVED and are given to us with every possible detail to the last note. These performances together with them from Dimitris Sgouros are toping the competition and deliver to us the full Brahms-ian experience.
