Ravel - Piano Concerto in D for the Left Hand
Mahler - Symphony No.5
Sir Mark Elder
Nelson Goerner, piano
Sir Mark greatly enjoys collaborating with the Argentinian pianist Nelson Goerner, who has been a long-time favourite with Bridgewater Hall audiences. An artist ‘of a very high order… Goerner purveys poetry as natural as breathing.’ (BBC Music Magazine) He plays Ravel’s Concerto for the Left Hand, born out of the roaring twenties, showing all of Ravel’s characteristic genius with spiky jazz rhythms and piquant harmonies. In the same way that Ravel absorbed popular music of the day into his concerto, so Mahler embraced folk song, military, Jewish and popular music in his symphonies, as in the Fifth. The symphony’s most well-known movement, the other-worldly Adagietto for strings and harp, secured the work’s popularity through its use in Visconti’s film of Thomas Mann’s Death in Venice.
