What you need to know about this programme:
Take a leap into the 20th century! One of Béla Bartók’s last compositions, the notoriously complex Viola Concerto has endured as a pinnacle of the repertoire. This work is performed by French- born CPO Principal Violist Laurent Grillet-Kim. Igor Stravinsky’s colourful and exceedingly popular ballet Petrushka is a feast for the ears and imagination, and tells the love triangle story of three puppets brought to life and — spoiler alert! — death.
KARL HIRZER, conductor
