Baltimore Symphony Orchestra 1

Thibaudet performs Gershwin

Celebrated conductor Marin Alsop directs a programme of Stravinsky, Schumann and Gershwin’s Piano Concerto.

Stravinsky The Firebird Suite (1919)
Gershwin Piano Concerto
Schumann Symphony No 2

Driven, demanding, brilliantly energetic, US conductor Marin Alsop creates performances that blaze with conviction. She is also famously a protégée of the great composer, conductor and pianist Leonard Bernstein. 

As part of the International Festival’s centenary celebrations of Bernstein’s larger-than-life genius, Alsop brings together three pieces closely associated with the great man. 

Witty, flamboyant French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet is the soloist in the riffs and romps of Gershwin’s breezy Piano Concerto. Stravinsky’s The Firebird is a sumptuous fairytale of glittering colour and tremendous power. The concert closes with the restless vigour of Schumann’s profoundly searching Symphony No 2.
