Debussy (orch. Robin Holloway) - En blanc et noir
Mozart - Concerto for Two Pianos
Ryan Wigglesworth - Piano Concerto
Ravel - Valses nobles et sentimentales
Ryan Wigglesworth, piano
Paul Lewis, piano
A programme of tributes, where the multi-talents of Ryan Wigglesworth are revealed; not only as a conductor but also through his latest composition, and as a performer when he joins his eminent colleague, Paul Lewis, in the concerto Mozart composed for himself and his sister to play. This work provided the inspiration for Wigglesworth’s own Piano Concerto, conceived for the artistry of Lewis who is, of course, no stranger to the Hallé. Book-ending the concert are two quintessential French works, Debussy’s En blanc et noir, originally for piano duet, brought into orchestral garb by Robin Holloway in ‘homage and in the spirit of Debussy’ and Ravel’s suite of waltzes, inspired by his love of Schubert.
