Presentation

From advertisements for insurance to gruelling beep tests: few classical compositions have become so omnipresent as the Boléro. Maurice Ravel’s instantly recognisable ‘study in orchestration’, based on a continuously recurring motif, concludes our symphonic season. We have paired it with the same composer’s Piano Concerto in G major. Ravel drew inspiration for both works from the popular jazz styles of his time and the two have been linked ever since the concerto’s world premiere. August De Boeck’s Romantic Nocturne brings our principal conductor Alain Altinoglu’s exploration of Belgian symphonic music to a close for this season. The programme also includes the light-hearted Carnaval des animaux by Camille Saint-Saëns, which will see our maestro take to the piano himself.
