Bujar Llapaj conducts: Cherubini Overture to ‘Lodoïska’, Ravel Piano Concerto in G and Mother Goose Suite, Stravinsky Pulcinella suite

About this event

Hertfordshire Chamber Orchestra, leader Jan Kaznowski, with conductor Bujar Llapaj and piano soloist John Paul Ekins

MUSIC FIRST HEARD IN PARIS --- We begin with the overture to Luigi Cherubini's opera 'Lodoïska', charting the rescue of a princess from the clutches of a ruthless baron in 17th-Century Poland. Written for the Paris Opera just after the Revolution, it quotes Mozart and inspired Beethoven. Shifting to more obviously French company with two pieces by Maurice Ravel, we hear his jazz-inspired G-major piano concerto with soloist John Paul Ekins, followed by the suite from his evocative fairytale ballet 'Ma mère l'Oye'. Returning to the role of Paris on the international stage, the suite to Russian Igor Stravinsky's delightful 1920 ballet about the Neapolitan Commedia dell'arte jester 'Pulcinella' completes our programme.
